As a steward to the community; we will serve as a vessel to promote the history of Latta University, its founder and other historic facets of Oberlin Village. These offerings will be rendered through educational and cultural opportunities for all.
Latta recounts the founding of the university in his memoir “The History of My Life and Work”; also documenting his life in slavery and the many challenges that followed. The book, available to view online, also features several photos of Latta, his family and students, and the university.
An original copy of the book and several Latta University artifacts excavated from the site was on display as part of the exhibit “Latta’s Living Legacy” 2014- 2016 at the City of Raleigh Museum (COR) at 220 Fayetteville Street.
