Where Were the Rosenwald Schools?

Record #:
Through funds provided by philanthropist Julius Rosenwald to improve African American education, 5,300 Rosenwald schools were built in rural areas of 15 Southern states between 1917 and 1932. North Carolina built the most with over 830. Many have fallen into ruin. An effort is now underway \"to find, identify, and record the location of these schools before the structures disappear altogether.\"
