History for Lunch on February 15

History for Lunch: Progress & Growth: P.W. Moore High School, 1934 - 1954


Glen Bowman, Ph.D., Elizabeth City State University, will provide a presentation on academics and athletics. 

Elizabeth City's P.W. Moore High School was northeastern North Carolina's most outstanding public secondary school for Black students during segregation. This presentation will cover the middle period of the school's history, starting from the mid-1930s and ending with the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision that would ultimately desegregate public education in North Carolina.
