Walking Tour of North Carolina A&T State University Campus
May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
NEW TOUR! North Carolina A&T State University is the largest historically black college or university in the United States. Founded by the North Carolina General Assembly in 1891, it is the state’s second college established under the provisions of the Morrill Land-Grant Acts, and the state’s first for people of color. It is a leader in education and Civil Rights, including its four students, known as the Greensboro Four, who initiated peaceful sit-ins at the Woolworth’s Counter to end segregation. Ever progressive, A&T’s campus has looked to the future for architectural inspiration since the 1960s. Today, the campus contains one of the most daring and innovative collections of modern architecture in the southeast.
Now in our 15th season of tours, Preservation Greensboro’s Urban Guide Rebecca Lowe will review key historical themes and architectural styles found on the campus, including early twentieth century dormitories, mid-twentieth century expansion, and modern additions on a 60 – 75-minute tour. The tour will be cancelled in case of rain. Wear comfortable shoes! This tour is FREE. Meet at the Greensboro Four Monument, located at 266 University Circle.
