Eric Blair Presents – Daily Knowledge: Institute for Colored Youth (Day 20)

One of the first high schools to prepare Black youth for skilled trades and teaching, the Institute for Colored Youth later evolved into Cheyney University. The institute’s predecessor was a farm school on the outskirts of Philadelphia that was established in 1852 with bequests from two Quakers. The school eventually closed and the farm was sold. Twenty years later, in 1852, a new school, the Institute for Colored Youth, was built. In 1902, the school was relocated to Cheyney, Pennsylvania. Former address was 915 Bainbridge Street, Phila, Pa
