March 7th Meeting: African American Schools

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

Topic: Albemarle County Schools after the Civil War

Time to begin exploring aspects of community formation in depth, and to look at them in relation to our two study sites. First, education. Lynn Rainville, Gayle Schulman, and Dede Smith will update us on the Rosenwald schools project, records dealing with county schools, teachers, and attendance, and Hydraulic-area schools. Contributions from others are welcomed.

Note: the meeting is canceled if Monticello is closed because of inclement weather. For information, go to or call 434-984-9822, press 1, then press 4 for a recorded announcement
