[Leslie Pinckney Hill:] Cheyney-Dunbar Recital. Chester High School Auditorium ... 1928 ... Cheyney Normal School, Chester High School Dunbar Society.
Musical and theatrical recital by students at an historically Black college and a local Dunbar Society
Program for an evening’s entertainment of song, spoken word, and a theatrical performance given jointly by students of Cheyney Normal School, an historically Black college in Pennsylvania founded as the Institute for Colored Youth, and student-members of the Dunbar Society at nearby Chester High School. The Dunbar Society presented the one-act play The Wonder Hat by Kenneth Sawyer Goodman and Ben Hecht. The welcoming address for the evening was given by Cheyney’s principal, the noted African-American educator, author and poet, Leslie Pinckney Hill. Prior to coming North, Hill taught at Booker T. Washington’s Tuskegee Institute and at Manassas Industrial School for Colored Youth in Virginia. During Hill’s administration the school became a degree-granting-institution and, when he retired in 1951, it was re-named Cheyney State Teachers College. [DANB]
