North Carolina State Colored Normal School 1877-1939

North Carolina State Colored Normal School was established in 1877 by an act of the North Carolina legislature, which provided for the establishment of a teacher training institution for Black North Carolinians. The Howard School, established in 1867, in Fayetteville was selected to become the State Colored Normal School, and thus become the first and oldest state-supported institution of its kind in North Carolina.

These are the earliest college catalogs that have been located. They include names of the administrators, teachers and students. The academic calendar, descriptions of the institution and its location, conditions of membership, tuition costs, length of the term, discipline, courses of study, examinations and certificates earned.
