- Creator: Southern Oral History Program
- Collection: Southern Oral History Program Interviews
Interviews with black high school principals in North Carolina conducted by Goldie Frinks Wells, a doctoral candidate at UNC Chapel Hill, as part of research for her dissertation, "A Comparison of the Role Perceptions of Black High School Principals." Respondents, African Americans who held the post of principal in 1964 and African American principals in 1991, spoke on topics including job responsibilities, demands, accomplishments, and rewards; education and the black community; racism and discrimination; school administration; and personal background and character traits. The project focused on the influence of desegregation on black high school principals' perceptions on their work roles.
