The William Penn Project is a classroom-based service learning initiative that explores and shares the history of a segregated African American high school in High Point, North Carolina from its founding in 1892 through its closure in 1968. Undergraduate students at High Point University and high school students at the Penn-Griffin School for the Arts (which inhabits the buildings that used to hold William Penn High School) are doing archival research and oral history interviews with alumni and using that evidence to build a website on the history of the school. More memorabilia and information can be found at the William Penn Project on Biblioboard.
