The Wall Street Journal features a photo essay on Rosenwald Schools. Highly recommend.
If you’re interested in this period you might also check out The Educaiton of Blacks in the South, 1860-1935 by James Anderson. It’s a seminal work that, in my view, should be a fixture of ed school programs. And also Dangerous Donations by Eric Anderson and Alfred Moss.
James Anderson visited with Bellwether at a recent team retreat, terrific experience. This Bellwether deck on education in the American South gets at some of the history as well.
