Educational reform was a major component of early 20th century Democratic political campaigns with men like Governor Charles B. Aycock leading the way. Working with Aycock, Charles McIver was a crucial figure in developing legislature to include education for African Americans despite popular opinion of the time. McIver was president of the Industrial College in Greensboro and believed in education for African Americans if not completely equal education. These opinions are expressed in a series of letters between himself and his political allies which are reprinted in this article.
