Charles Drew athletics remembered

It has been 50 years since the Purple Cobras played sports at Charles Drew High School.
Those days may be long gone, but they are not forgotten by those who loved their school.
In the early 1900s, the only means of education that black children received was through homes and churches.
In the early 1940s, the South Eunice Colored School – a three room school building – was formed to educate first and second graders.
Then came North Eunice Colored School for third through eighth graders.
