Rev Floyd Massey

*This date in 1915 celebrates the birth of Rev. Floyd Massey Jr. He was an African American minister and teacher.

Born in Rock Hill, S.C., Massey grew up in Gastonia, N.C., and earned a bachelor's degree from Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, N.C., in 1936. He spent that Depression summer cleaning the white First Baptist Church of Gastonia because he could earn more as a janitor than I could as a teacher. Massey taught American history, sociology and economics at Booker T. Washington High School in Columbia, S.C. until 1941. During this time he earned his master's degree and doctorate in divinity at Colgate Rochester Divinity School in Rochester, N.Y.
