Dr. Beverly Washington Jones

“We believe all children should have access to the educational services that will give them the tools to succeed.”
– Dr. Beverly Washington Jones

A native of Durham and a graduate of the Durham Public Schools System, Dr. Jones received her B.A. and M.A. degrees in history from NCCU, and was the first African-American female to receive a Ph.D. in American history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has served as a member on the Durham Public School Board for seven years. In 2005, Dr. Beverly Washington Jones, former dean of University College at North Carolina Central University (NCCU), was appointed as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at North Carolina Central University (NCCU).

Dr. Jones played a leading role in implementing closing the achievement gap programs that place institutions of higher education at the forefront of marshalling their resources in collaborative efforts with state/local government, the faith communities, parents, students, Leader’s Education Association, and corporations. From 1997-1999, she directed Saturday Academy, a program for third, fourth, and fifth graders in six (6) Durham Public Schools.

In 2002, with $2.25 million from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, Durham Housing Authority’s Hope VI program and the Verizon Foundation, Dr. Jones increased Saturday Academy’s enrollment from 175 to 400 students and expanded the number of public schools served from 6 to 12. She has published five books and more than 20 articles on various subjects, from the stories of Durham’s historic Hayti district to the advancement and consequence of American politics.
