ABSTRACT
Alexander Twilight's story a mystery of Black history. In addition to the enduring massive stone building, christened Athenian Hall, which stands as a monument to him, 19th century educator Rev. Twilight left behind some puzzling questions in Browington, Vt. Available information suggests he was a Black or Mulatto, and, if so, as he graduated from Middlebury in 1823, he was therefore the first Black American to graduate from college to serve in a state legislature.
