Established in 1897
The university was founded in 1897 as a land grant college and was known as the Oklahoma Colored Agricultural and Normal University. Langston University was created as a result of the second Morrill Act in 1890. In 1941, the school was renamed Langston University.

The University is named for John Mercer Langston (1829-1897), a black Virginia educator prominent in public affairs who organized the first Department of Law at Howard University, later serving as vice president and acting president of the university. He was appointed by the U.S. President to serve as resident minister in Haiti and Santo Domingo. He was also president of Virginia State College for Negroes and was elected in Virginia to serve in the House of Representatives from 1890-1891.
