experienceRaleigh/Durham Student Assignment:

Go to the North Carolina Central University Jame E. Shepard Memorial Library located on 1801 Fayetteville Street, Durham, NC 27707 and find The Dr. Henry Lewis Suggs African and African-American History Collection. Find out what information he has on The “Great Migration” period for African Americans in American History.

Dr. Suggs is the author of four books, many scholarly articles and book reviews in refereed journals. His works have been published in the Harvard University Business Review, the Journal of Southern History, the American Historical Review, the Journal of Negro History, and the Virginia Historical Review.

In 2007, Dr. Suggs donated to NCCU an estimated 1200 hundred volumes of his collected works, including his prized and valuable research papers amassed over his professional career. There now exists for scholars a body of writings concentrating on the social, cultural, economic, political and educational history of African-Americans in the South and at North Carolina Central University.
