Special People & Agencies of Hoke County, North Carolina (By Ellen McNeill)

Hoke County, NC, USA


This publication will showcase these individuals in Hoke County, North Carolina, who are just ordinary mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. By working together, they have made this small, southern town an extraordinary place filled with rich, colorful history, as well as a promising future. The author, Commissioner Ellen McNeill has captured a picturesque glimpse into Hoke County and how its history has molded it- from a time of separation based on a person’s skin color to a time of integration. This is a town where everyone may be respected for their contributions to creating a better world, to a time where we know both acknowledge and defend the belief that all lives matter.
