Re: Galveston Tx 1st AfrAm School?
In Response To: Galveston Tx 1st AfrAm School? ()

Vicky,

I found only two things pertaining to your search. You probably have these already.

I found a Houston Time-line that stated: "1865 - Three Black Schools are established by the Freedman's Bureau."
That information is found at: www.houstonculture.org/resources/houstontime.html

Also, I found a site that mentioned the 1st. Black high school established in Galveston was in 1885
www.galveston.com/history/

Perhaps, by your contacting someone at these two sites, you just might be pointed in the right direction for more detailed information.

I hope this helps you in some way,

Anita
