William Penn Project

The William Penn 16749436864_b161d37494_zProject partners High Point University with Penn-Griffin School for the Arts in an exploration of the history of William Penn High School, which served African-American students in High Point from the 1890s through its closure in 1968. Students from both schools are interviewing William Penn alumni and performing archival research that has uncovered documents, photographs, and even musical recordings from the school’s history. The HPU students are constructing a written, oral, and visual history of the school on a website that is accessible and responsive to the community’s input.
