Profiles of African American schools, churches, universities and leaders in the decades after emancipation are now available online through the State Library of North Carolina.

The library recently posted the full 444-page book “An Era of Progress and Promise,” written in 1910 by W.N. Hartshorn. Online users can read the book or browse the list of institutions and individuals profiled:

Among the profiles: Charlotte's Biddle University, which eventually became Johnson C. Smith University; the Rev. H.L. McCrorey, Biddle's president; and Bishop George Clinton of Charlotte, an AME Zion Church leader whose article “Greatest Needs of the Negro Race” is included in the book.
