Cravath Hall Fisk University Nashville TN
Fisk University was established in Nashville, Tennessee in 1866 for former slaves by the American Missionary Association. In 1872 it became the first African American college to receive a class A rating by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Since its conception, Fisk University has established itself as one of the country's leading educational institutions and has trained a large number of important leaders in the civil rights movement. This neo-Gothic structure first served as the Erastus M. Cravath Memorial Library. It presently serves as the administration building. Named for Cravath, the university's first president (1875-1900), it was designed by Nashville architect Henry Hibbs and built in 1929-30.
