McKimmon Village, 1960

Title

McKimmon Village, 1960

Description

NCSU offered a variety of housing options. Pictured is a 1960s unit designed specifically for married students. However, for NC State's many graduate students, these units would fill up flat, causing thousands to look for off-campus housing in one of many West Raleigh neighborhoods. For minority students of color, looking for housing was a harrowing experience. Oftentimes, landlords would simply not post an available listing rather than allow a person of color to live in their property.
