Charlotte Hawkins Brown: The Evolution of a North Carolina Legacy


Abstract:
Fresh from her studies at Cambridge, Massachusetts's prestigious English High School, Charlotte Hawkins Brown returned to North Carolina in 1902 to found a unique private school for Afro-Americans in Sedalia near Greensboro. She was 19, and the school was the Palmer Memorial Institute. It became her life's work, as over the next fifty years, Brown developed the school into one of the nation's premier boarding schools for Afro-Americans.
