Colored High School Opens (1895)

The Suffolk Normal and Collegiate Institute, a colored chartered institution of learning for the higher education of their youth, opened to-day under favorable auspices. The Good Samaritan Hall will be used until the stockholders can erect a suitable structure. The school has an initial enrollment of about seventy names, all of which, however, were not present to-day. Rev. S. G. Newsome is president, and Dr. J. C. Ayler is one of the chief instructors. Catalogues will be issued in a few days.
