Abstract:

The James A. Whitted School was Durham, North Carolina’s first African American graded school. Founded in 1887, it suffered from the disparities between black and white schools in the county. Despite these limitations, the school was a training ground for students and staff who would become leading and influential citizens in Durham’s black financial, educational, and political communities. The Whitted School served as an example of the pre and post emancipation black commitment to education. In the face of local and state governments’ minimal support for black education, Durham’s African American community strategized, organized, and raised their own funds and voices to support, improve and protect their school. In the 1920s, the Whitted School evolved into what was Durham’s first public high school for African Americans, Hillside High School.
