      The Maxton Historical Society will hold is annual meeting on Saturday,
      February 15, 2003 at 6:30. This year's program will be presented by
      K. Blake Tyner and is entitled "Charles Hunter and his role in early
      African American Education in Robeson County".

      Charles Hunter although born a slave in Wake County, North Carolina
      went on to become an educator and editor who was prominent in the
      effort to provide better educational facilities for black students in
      North Carolina and was instrumental in having several schools for
      black students constructed in the state. As a member of the North
      Carolina Industrial Association he also sought to expand the
      opportunities for blacks in agriculture and industry.

      Hunter's first teaching job was in Maxton and the program will focus
      on his life while in Robeson County. Documentation is taken from his
      papers that are housed at Duke University and his publication "Review
      of Negro Life in North Carolina with My Recollections".

      Do not miss this opportunity to learn more about an early educator in
      Robeson County. For more information or to make reservations call
      910-844-2377 or email me.
