Dr. Joyce Berry talks primarily about her experience in higher education, her decision to go out of state to Hampton Institute. Eventually she became the first African American female to get a Ph. D from the University of Kentucky. Her father passed on his philosophy of looking out for yourself which proved useful to her as she faced various barriers in academia. Transcript available.
