Black History,  North Carolina History

From the Archives: Cumberland County, NC (ca. 1921)

Throughout the 1920s, Dr. George E. Davis, the supervisor of Rosenwald buildings for North Carolina, traveled the state to determine educational needs within black communities. Upon viewing this unidentified African-American school, he wrote: “School now in session. One (typical) of the Cumberland County, N.C. Negro Public Schools. Some worse–few better.”
