About "Mens et Manus: A Pictorial History of North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University"

Celebrating 125 years, Mens et Manus: A Pictorial History of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University preserves the voices of men and women who through the generations have walked its campus as faculty, staff, and students. 

The book continues the historical tradition of telling the A&T story as chronicled by President Emeritius Warmouth T. Gibbs for the 75th celebration and also faculty members Carrye H. Hill and Albert W. Spruill in the early 1960s.  

Using the backdrop of American and African American history and the Washington / Du Bois debate, the pictorial history provides the authentic record of one of the country’s most highly recognized (and now the largest!) historically black land-grant institutions. The Latin motto inscribed on the university seal states Mens et Manus, mind and hand, as both are involved in the preparation for life.

From 1890 to 2014, A&T provided training for students who would work in an agrarian society, intellectual awareness for an astute student body, educational opportunities for soldiers returning from war on the GI Bill, hope, inspiration, and support for students during the turbulent 1960s, and an understanding of the careers that graduates will seek out in the 21st century. 

Dr. Styles and Prof. Nieman have sought to depict the multifaceted, culturally rich, ever-advancing community that is North Carolina A&T—a university whose students exemplify not only tremendous courage, determination, and a desire to succeed, but also are prepared to enhance the quality of life for themselves, the citizens of North Carolina, the nation, and - yes - the world!.
