Museum Grants for African American History and Culture

Elizabeth City State University will create a plan for the development of a Northeastern North Carolina African American Research and Cultural Heritage Center. The planned center will collect, preserve, protect, and interpret the material and archival history of the university and affiliated communities. The plan will connect the mission of the center and its collections with the interests of its audiences. It will also provide the university with a unified set of interpretive themes, designs, and educational programs to guide its efforts to establish the center. The center will be housed in two historic campus buildings: the Rosenwald School, constructed in 1921, and the university's original Principal's House, constructed in 1923.
