History

Much of the history of Durham has been largely influenced both by the rise and fall of the tobacco industry and Duke University. However, the Spaulding Community also has close ties to North Carolina Central University, which was founded in 1909 and remains one of a handful of historically black public universities. The community borders the university and provides housing to many students and faculty members.

The neighborhood was named after C.C. Spaulding who was a prominent member of Black Wall Street and the founder of the North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company. Residents can still visit Black Wall Street and learn more about how black businessmen were able to thrive despite segregation and discrimination.
