Southeastern Community College Newspapers Now Available on DigitalNC

ramsheadA selection of student newspapers from Southeastern Community College in Whiteville, N.C., is now available on DigitalNC in the North Carolina Newspapers collection. The school was founded in 1964 and is part of North Carolina’s state-supported community college system. There are currently 60 newspapers online, ranging in date from 1966 to 1977.

The issues online include articles about the school’s first graduation, news of a new computer on campus in 1974, and regular features on the “Miss SCC” pageant, but the paper also addressed broader issues, including coverage of a Jane Fonda speech at an anti-war rally in Fayetteville in 1970, a special edition covering the college’s black studies program,  and concerts by Earl Scruggs and Dizzy Gillespie.
