Our team loves to hear firsthand accounts of those who attended Rosenwald Schools, and learn about the specific impact it made in their lives and communities. One such school was covered by the Washington Post on Sunday, that we just had to share. The story is about a schoolhouse named Ridgeley, built in 1927 in Capitol Heights, Md. The Post explores the influence this Rosenwald School had on students and also what the larger initiative meant for education in black communities across the south.
