BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY























L Little Known Black History Fact: Beverly Harvard

D.L. Chandler

Beverly Harvard became a police officer after taking on a $100 bet from her husband and a friend who thought she wouldn’t cut it. Not only did she complete the course to become an officer for the Atlanta Police Department, she went on to become the first Black female police chief for the force as well.

Harvard, a 1972 graduate of Morris Brown College with a degree in sociology, met her husband and friend’s challenge in 1973 and entered the academy. While she had no idea what she’d be up against, she managed to graduate and worked her way up in the ranks. Her husband was so worried about her night assignments, he would routinely follow her around to make certain she was safe.

After earning the respect of her peers, Harvard juggled police work, family life and graduate school, earning her master’s in 1980 from Georgia State University.

While she never openly complained, Harvard did state in an interview that the lack of women at the same level she was professionally was lonely at times but she pressed on. History was made in October 1994 when she was sworn in as Atlanta’s top cop at the age of 43.

Harvard remained on the job until 2002, then began working as the Security Director for the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.

In 2010, President Barack Obama named Harvard a U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of Georgia.

Early life
She was born Candice McClure[4] in Durban, South Africa.[5] She is of Cape Coloured descent.

McClure graduated from West Vancouver Secondary School in 1998.[citation needed]

Acting career
McClure's first television appearance was a lead role with Lou Diamond Phillips in the 1999 telefilm In a Class of His Own that was followed by the Fox Family teen drama Higher Ground (together with Jewel Staite, Hayden Christensen, and A.J. Cook) and the NBC Saturday-morning series Just Deal, both of which premiered in 2000. The year 2000 was also the time period when McClure played a recurring role in the Canadian drama television series Da Vinci’s Inquest.[6]

In 2002, McClure portrayed the recurring character of Elizabeth Munroe on Showtime's Jeremiah, alongside Luke Perry and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.[6] Also in that year, the actress played the role of Sue Snell in the telefilm remake of Stephen King's novel Carrie.[7]

From 2003 to 2009, McClure played the character of Anastasia "Dee" Dualla on the Sci Fi Channel series Battlestar Galactica. McClure's character, a Petty Officer Second Class in the Colonial Fleet, was not featured in the original 1978 series, but was initially an analogue of Sarah Rush's original series character Flight Corporal Rigel. McClure was a regular cast member of the series until January 2009.[8]

In 2011 McClure played the girlfriend of Stuart Davis in the independent short film Just Be Yourself, a comedy about a desperate man who is offered a job to "just be himself."[13][14] McClure then joined Davis again in 2011 to co-host the second season of the late-night HDNet program Sex, God, Rock 'n' Roll.[15] In 2012 McClure joined the cast of Netflix original series Hemlock Grove (premiered in January 2013[9])[16] and completed the feature film Broken Kingdom (alongside Rachael Leigh Cook).[9][unreliable source?] McClure has also appeared in other television programs, such as Whistler, Andromeda, Jake 2.0, Smallville, and Reaper.[6]

The video was filmed on location in High River, Alberta in June 2015. It features Kandyse McClure as Viola Desmond.[18] Civil rights activist Viola Desmond, often described as the Rosa Parks of Canada, was an entrepreneur who challenged segregation in Nova Scotia in the 1940s.
