Nyatsime College was the country's first technical college specifically for black (African) students. It opened in 1962, in what was then Southern Rhodesia. It was the progeny of Stanlake J. W. T. Samkange. At the time no such school for black (African) students existed, and Samkange had started fundraising for the school in 1951 already. (West, Michael Oliver (2002). The Rise of an African Middle Class: Colonial Zimbabwe, 1898-1965. Indiana University Press).
The school, designed to be run by African administrators and faculty for African students, was modelled on Tuskegee University in Alabama, USA; the opening dedication was attended by Luther H. Foster Jr., then Tuskegee's president. [1]
