Second Ward High School National Alumni Foundation

The Second Ward High School National Alumni Foundation was established in 1980 in order to preserve the memory and heritage of Second Ward High School, North Carolina's first African-American high school. The Foundation has established the Second Ward Alumni House and interpretive museum, as well as honors its educational heritage through remedial and tutorial activities for youth council, youth enrichment programs and annual scholarship and awards for area high school seniors.

The alumni of Charlotte's first black high school are committed to preserving and sharing the history and heritage of our African American community. Telling stories through film and images, they reach a large audience through media projects. The House archive contains a wealth of materials from black organizations and families.
