University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines James E. Shepard who was a remarkable black leader and educator in North Carolina. A prominent politician, Shepard encouraged the state to consolidate the South's first publicly sustained black liberal arts college in 1925 and later stressed for the North Carolina College for Negroes as a fully-fledged university. This chapter explores Shepard's struggle in his career and life to expand the equalization of higher education and to restrict NAACP-backed efforts to integrate the University of North Carolina. The chapter also discusses other historical settlers and black institute builders of higher education desegregation.
