Samuel E Duncan School

This is the front door of the school I have been featuring. There was a historic marker on the corner that talked about when the school was built, but not who it was named for. Samuel E Duncan was state supervisor of Negro high schools beginning in 1946. He earned a PhD from Cornell and became the president of Livingstone College in 1958.

The picture of the school is effective. The history of Duncan is very interesting.

Eye-catching processing to bring out nice textures and patterns! The school appears so well intact. Samuel Duncan would not be proud today.

A great view of the front of the school. The students had a lot to live up to with a school named after a person of such great accomplishment. It is sad that it has been left to fall apart.
