The Shaw University Journal: Commencement Number [1939], pages 46-47

Three new yearbooks from Shaw University are now available on DigitalNC.

Founded in 1865, Shaw was the first college established for African Americans in the South. Shaw has often been called the mother of African American colleges in NC, as the founding presidents of three other NC HBCUs were all alums of Shaw. The Shaw University Journal: Commencement Number [1937] is the earliest yearbook from Shaw University now available on DigitalNC, but Shaw has shared campus publicans dating back to 1882.

The three new yearbooks are available at the links below:
