I stumbled upon this while researching the history of my hometown of Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Now called St. Peter's Catholic School, it's 122 year history of education in Pine Bluff is well noted. First named The Colored Industrial Institute, it began with an enrollment of 140 pupils on September 9, 1889. St. Peter’s was the first school founded for African-American children in Arkansas and was staffed by the Sisters of Charity from Nazareth, Kentucky. I hope you enjoy this bit of history as i did. Comment and share.
