Phyllis Bailey Presents Black History in Iredell County

Phyllis Bailey

In the 1910s, Chicago philanthropist Julius Rosenwald, president of Sears, Roebuck and Co., became aware of the sad state of education among African Americans in the rural South. His response was establishment of a fund that provided architectural plans and matching grants that helped build more than 5,300 schools from Maryland to Texas between the late 1910s and 1932. Iredell County Historian Phyllis Bailey will discuss the history and importance of the Rosenwald Schools in North Carolina.
