Prince-Carr Elementary School

We know very little about this particular school thus far. While bearing an address of Cheraw, the former school is actually located in the community of Cash near Cheraw State Park. In 1951 Governor James Byrnes developed a program to construct new elementary and high schools for African-American children throughout South Carolina. The construction was funded by the first general sales tax passed in the state and came in response to the Supreme Court case of Briggs v. Elliott, based out of Clarendon County, which challenged the South’s stance on “separate but equal” education.

These schools became known as South Carolina Equalization Schools. Prince-Carr Elementary School is thought to have been constructed in 1953. The case of Briggs v. Elliot was the first of five cases to be combined into Brown v. Board of Education, the famous 1954 case in which the United States Supreme Court declared public school segregation unconstitutional.
