Bucknell's first African American student, E.M. Brawley came to Bucknell on the advice of Rev. and Mrs. B. Griffith, D.D., who gave him a scholarship. He supported himself by teaching vocal music to Bucknell students and others, and by preaching. When he graduated in 1875, he was ordained a minister by a council vote of the white Baptist church in Lewisburg where he had been preparing.
