Transformations in Education on the Lower Cape Fear
African American educational experiences vary greatly from the end of the Civil War until today. During this period emancipation and desegregation dramatically influenced education in the lower Cape Fear. Emancipation was the promise of equality in all aspects, including education, and desegregation attempted to fulfill that promise. Within settings such as the Williston, Rosenwald, and Gregory schools, community leaders shaped the educational experience for all students. Through this exhibit, you will explore African American education through the many accomplishments and contributions of local residents.
