The Bowehouse Project, LLC is a legacy restoration development aimed to revitalize and to restore two adjacent properties used as boarding homes and a teacherly for African American Teachers during the Jim Crowe Era. Based on this information, the founders have been working with the North Carolina Central University Archives Department to capture the rich historical firsthand facts, data, evidence from letters, and other primary sources, remarking the other surrounding North Carolina HBCUs involvement. The following HBCU’s included in this research are: Shaw University, Winston Salem State University, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina A& T University, Saint Augustine University, North Carolina Central University, Johnson C. Smith University, and Fayetteville State University. All of these surrounding HBCU’s helped in shaping this community to provide equal educational opportunities; specifically, the African American population of this rural town located just a few miles north of Hillsborough, North Carolina during the segregation era. Because of the influence from these teachers; many poor African American students from this town were able to fulfill their dreams to attend and graduate from these HBCU’s and continued to pave the way for generations to come.
