Chancellor James Ammons

Celebrated educator James Shepard founded what would become North Carolina Central University in 1910. Since then, the college has been through several name changes — including Durham State Normal School and the North Carolina College for Negroes. Recently, the school added a major bioresearch facility and is in the midst of a growth spurt, but there have been high-profile setbacks, including the costly removal of toxic mold from two new dormitories. Host Melinda Penkava speaks with James Ammons, chancellor of North Carolina Central University, about the future of the school and its mission. Listener Call-In. (59:00)
