First NCCU Law School Graduate

In March 1939, as North Carolina College for Negroes (now North Carolina Central University) received its charter from the State Legislature to begin a department of law, World War II was in full swing. The world was at war when in one small school in North Carolina, a young black student began law school alone. The student was Robert Richard Bond, the first graduate of NCCU School of Law.
