Description


Legendary Locals of Raleigh seeks to capture the essence of the city by highlighting many of the individuals who have contributed to its development: people like the first resident, Joel Lane, who sold North Carolina the land to establish Raleigh in 1792; James H. Young, a courageous African American politician during Reconstruction; Scottie Stephenson, a broadcasting legend and matriarch of Capitol Broadcasting Company; John Chavis, a free black reverend and prominent schoolteacher of Raleigh's black and white students in the early 1800s; Katharine Stinson, the Federal Aviation Administration's first female employee, whose career choice was inspired by a conversation with Amelia Earhart at Raleigh Municipal Airport; and Ella Baker, a local Shaw University graduate, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. confidant, and founder of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, an influential civil rights organization. This book is only an overview of the many who have shaped Raleigh while calling it home.
