Friendship College

Based in Rock Hill, South Carolina, Friendship College was founded in 1891 as “a place for young African-Americans to be educated so that they could move forward in society as ministers and educators.” The institution held its final semester in 1981 after an investigation exposed a mismanagement of funds.
