The Early History or Peck High School”
with Summer Bias

Peck High School closed in 1969 due to desegregation mandates. However, its roots reach all the way back to 1880 when Henry Beard Delaney petitioned for a high school for African American children in Fernandina. Summer Bias, who curated the forthcoming permanent exhibit on Peck High School at the Peck Center, discussed Peck’s early history, from its inception as Colored School No. 1 to the construction of the new Rosenwald building in the 1920s. Bias is the Curator at the Amelia Island Museum of History.
