On February 6, 2024, Rick Kinner, of Corolla, along with other members of the Outer Banks Stamp Club, presented the Historic Jarvisburg Colored School with two framed Black Heritage stamp collections of African American leaders, entertainers, sports figures, writers and historical figures. These collections are hanging on the wall of the school’s visitor center for all to see and enjoy.

“While it is anticipated that these will be permanent exhibits, the public is invited to come and view this new addition to the School during Black History Month,” stated the announcement of the donation.

The Historic Jarvisburg Colored School is open during February on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is located at 7302 Caratoke Highway in Jarvisburg. It will be closed for a brief period after February to complete renovations.
