The Museum of the Albemarle will host a 3rd History for Lunch on Wednesday, February 15, 2023, at 12 p.m. in the Gaither Auditorium.
Glen Bowman, PhD, 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.
The Museum will offer the History for Lunch in-person and through Zoom. Register in advance through the Museum’s Facebook page or MuseumOfTheAlbemarle.com to receive a link to attend the lecture virtually.
The virtual program is supported by Southern Bank of Elizabeth City.
