Parker Academy

  Founded in 1839, the Parker Academy was one of but a scant few college preparatory schools to promote racial integration and co-gender education in the Antebellum Ohio. #nku #history #ohio #historicalarchaeology  #racialintergration  #education

Founded in 1839, the Parker Academy represents the first school in Ohio, possibly the first in the country, to offer gender and racial equality-based education in the same classroom between 1839 to 1889. 

NKU  faculty and students from the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Philosophy and the Department of History and Geography have been working at the Parker Academy site since spring 2015.
