Josephine Humphreys

Josephine Humphreys (born February 2, 1945) is an American novelist. =Early life= Josephine Humphreys lived in Charleston South Carolina with her mother father and two sisters(Vinh). Her father worked as the director of the Charleston development board. Her mother worked for the Charleston Museum(Josephine Humphreys Full Length Interview for Envision SC). Humphrey’s was encouraged to write by her grandmother Neta, and later her mother. All of the books she read were inherited from her grandparents on both sides or came from the public library(Vinh). The all-girl school she attended had an excellent writing program and a literary magazine according to Humphreys. After graduating high school, Josephine attended Duke University because her father believed it was southern college and her father was against her attending any ‘Northern school. What her father did not realize though was that Duke was anything but “a southern school”(Josephine Humphreys Full Length Interview for Envision SC). Her class was the first integrated undergraduate class. For four years it did not seem to bring up much problem until her graduation date where there was a bomb threat from the clan. To this day Humphrey's did not receive a graduation ceremony Provided by Wikipedia
