A New Link On Your Douglass Website Main Page: News of Other Black Schools in the Area!

There is now a new link on your Douglass Website main page, to news from the other black schools in the area that we share a heritage with.

I've been thinking about doing this for a long time, because these schools and the good people who attended them, are very important to our heritage in Upper East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. Our legacies are a combined one, that carries on the traditions of the African-American school experience.

So, please send us updated news, information about students, upcoming events and activities and pictures from:

Langston High School, Johnson City
Slater High School, Bristol, Tennessee
George Clem High School, Greeneville
Tanner High School, Newport
Douglas High School, Elizabethton
Swift High School, Rogersville
Douglas High School, Bristol, Virginia
Bland High School, Big Stone Gap
And others!

Please send news updates, information, upcoming events and even pictures to:
