Conference attendees came from thirty-four African American educational institutions, seventeen states, and nine missionary organizations. The conference explored education, religion, and social status of African Americans in the United States at that time since emancipation. The book contains images and information about a number of educational institutions, including thirty-four institutions in North Carolina.
