Goins et al. v. Board of Trustees of Indian Normal Training School at Pembroke, 169 NC 736, 86 SE 629 (27 Oct. 1915).
The lower court had ruled that Croatans from an adjacent county who became residents of Robeson County were eligible to attend the Normal School. The Board of Trustees appealed, arguing that the plaintiff’s children had Negro blood and were not designated as Croatans. The lower court’s decision was upheld. The Lumbee Petition (83.7 (a) (2) p. 46) identifies this as the Smiling School suit, which eventually led to a school system for a fourth race in the county. Discussed in Sider (entry 59).
