Rosenwald Schools Project Receives Award from Educators

Record #:
The North Carolina Association of Educators recognized the efforts of the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office and North Carolina's Rosenwald Schools Community Project to preserve the heritage of the schools. These schools for African American children were funded by matching grants provided by Chicago philanthropist Julius Rosenwald to African American communities that raised a certain amount of money. Between the late 1910s and 1932, there were 813 of the Rosenwald schools built in North Carolina, more than in any other state. Over 120 of the schools are still standing today.
