Biography of Edward W. Crosby and Shirley Crosby

Biographical Summary: With a background in developing curricula for disadvantaged students, Kent State University alumnus Edward W. Crosby was hired as director of the new Institute for African American Affairs in 1969. Created in response to Black United Students' activism, the Institute was established to create a program of African American Studies, with an aim to foster racial harmony. The Center of Pan-African Culture was created in 1970, and the Department of Pan-African Studies was created in 1976, both under Crosby's leadership. Working with Black United Students and other Kent State University administrators, Crosby played an integral role in expanding Negro History Week into a month-long commemoration, and the first Black History Month in the United States was held at the university in February 1970. Shirley Crosby volunteered countless hours supporting students and youth, both at the university and in the community, through her work with the Center of Pan-African Culture, the African Community Theatre, and other student organizations, all while raising their three sons.

Detailed Biographical Note: Edward W. Crosby (1932-2021) was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. A veteran of the United States Army Corps of Engineers, Special Category Army Reassigned with Air Force (SCARWAF), Crosby earned a BA and MA in medieval German language and history from Kent State University. He earned a doctorate degree in medieval German literature and medieval European history from the University of Kansas. He taught German and Spanish at several colleges, including Kent State, Hiram College, and Tuskegee Institute, but is most known for his work at Southern Illinois University, Kent State University, and the University of Washington where he worked primarily with Black students who oftentimes needed remediation to support their success in a collegiate environment. East St. Louis provided a real world laboratory where he was able to develop a curriculum tailored to the needs of the Black students enrolled in the Experiment in Higher Education (EHE), one of the first programs in the Unitied States designed specifically for at-risk students.

In July 1969 Crosby was asked to establish the first Black studies program at Kent State University. The Institute for African American Affairs (IAAA), a diversity intensive curricular program, was founded in August 1969. He is now known as the "father of Black History Month" after he helped Black United Students and the Center for Human Relations organize the nation's first Black History Month held on Kent State's campus in February 1970. Crosby was also instrumental in technological innovation at Kent State, and his department was the first to introduce desktop computers and cable TV in the classroom. From 1969 until his retirement in 1993, Crosby led the IAAA, the Center of Pan-African Culture (CPAC), and the Department of Pan-African Studies (DPAS).

Over the years Dr. Crosby developed a national reputation as one of the first leaders of the National Council of Black Studies and other national organizations involved in the establishment of Black studies as a discipline. Following his retirement from Kent State University, Crosby continued his involvement in the education of the Black community, founding the Ida B. Wells Community Academy in Akron, Ohio.

Shirley Crosby (1932-  ) was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. She earned a degree in sociology from Ohio University. In support of her husband's efforts at Kent State, Mrs. Crosby volunteered her time and expertise in the Center of Pan-African Culture for over 12 years, serving as advisor, fundraiser, ticket taker, vendor coordinator and organizer of the Pan-African Festival. She acted as advisor to a new organization on campus, Harambee, that was specifically designed to support the activities of the Center of Pan-African Culture, receiving the advisor of the year award in 1994. She was also advisor to Zeta Phi Beta sorority. Known as Mama Crosby, she had a significant impact as a community liaison with the Black communities of Kent, Akron, Cleveland, and Youngstown, as well as students from all around the world attending Kent State University. Edward and Shirley Crosby received lifetime achievement awards for their contributions to the African Community Theatre during its 25th anniversary celebration in 1998.
