A Day in a Rosenwald School – Learn about Rosenwald Schools in the South. These schools were built during the early 20th century to provide educational opportunities to African American children in the rural south. They were built using seed money provided by Julius Rosenwald, the president of Sears and Roebuck, who worked with Booker T. Washington of the Tuskegee Institute to develop this program that led to the improvement of the lives of thousands. Hear the fascinating story of this effort and experience part of a typical school day in our Rosenwald schoolroom. Say the 1918 Pledge of Allegiance, practice for the school spelling bee, experience reading, handwriting with nib pens and more. School sessions start at 10:00, 12:30 and 2:30 and last approximately 1 hour. To show our appreciation, teachers plus one guest are admitted free of charge with teacher ID.
