North Carolina Historically Black Colleges and Universities Timeline

Prior to the Civil War ending in 1865, there were only a few higher education institutions exclusively for African Americans. These institutions and the ones established after the Civil War ended are referred to as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Twelve HBCUs were developed in North Carolina from 1867 to 1910.  Today eleven are still in existence, five public institutions and six private.

Dear Angela,

Thank you for visiting NCpedia and sharing your question and your school project. I tried to reply to you with the email address you included in your comment but it bounced back.

It sounds like you have a question about a specific college.  Is this correct?  If you are interested in a specific North Carolina historically black college, please visit this NCpedia entry: http://www.ncpedia.org/education/hbcu.

It shows the list of historically black colleges in North Carolina, and NCpedia has an article for each of them with additional historical information.  You can click on the images on this page and you’ll go to the individual articles.  We don’t have timelines for each school, but you can create your own easily.  Here is a link to the timeline application that NCpedia uses: https://timeline.knightlab.com/.  It’s free on the internet and pretty easy to use.

I hope this helps.  Please let me know if you were thinking of something different or need additional help finding information.

Best wishes,

Kelly Agan, Government & Heritage Library
