Overview of LeMoyne-Owen College

About this school

LeMoyne-Owen, founded in 1862 for the education of African-Americans who had escaped to the Union army camps, is a church-affiliated, liberal arts college. The school was founded as Lincoln School, but changed its name to LeMoyne Normal and Commercial School in 1871, and in 1968 merged with Owen Junior College, another historically black school, to become LeMoyne-Owen College. Its 15-acre campus is located in South Memphis.
