‘Continuing’ The Living Legacy of Rosenwald Schools

On the 5th of October, 2013. I had an invaluable experience while attending a conference entitled:  “The Living Legacy of Rosenwald Schools” ; Communities Revitalized, held in Edenton, NC.

My childhood history and memories of my first school, in addition to my current  connections has truly been a fascinating journey and experience.  Who knew…that  growing up in Asheville, NC and attending a two room school in Mars Hill, NC had such a rich history.  A history for me that has taken on a life of power, vision and visionaries, strength and courage, perseverance  and most profoundly…’taking a stand and standing’ at a time in our American History was no doubt challenging.
