Livingstone College is one of our February 2019 Schools of the Month

About Livingstone College:

Originally founded as founded in 1879 as Zion Wesley Institute, Livingstone College is located in Salisbury, North Carolina. The institute began for the purpose of training ministers in Concord, North Carolina by a group of A.M.E. Zion ministers. Founder and first president of Livingstone college, Dr. Joesph Charles Price, made a lasting impact on the school when he raised $10,000 for the college during some time in England. When he returned the school was re-opened in 1882 in Salisbury, NC. The institute changed its name to Livingstone College in 1887 in honor of David Livingstone. Livingstone was a British man known as “Africa’s greatest missionary” for spreading the Christian message during his explorations of Africa. Livingstone College is home to the first black women to earn bachelor’s degrees in North Carolina. Today, Livingstone is still growing with three projects underway: The F. Shipman Science Annex; a Physical Education Building; and coming soon, the George E. Battle Jr. School of Business, Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology.
