Black History Month

It was a honor to speak to the Kirk of Kildaire Presbyterian Church in Cary to help them celebrate Black History Month. The presentation focused on how Booker T. Washington (President of Tuskegee  Institute) and Julius Rosenwald (the President of Sears-Roebuck) teamed up to build elementary schools in the south for black children. North Carolina had more Ronsenwald schools than any other state.  These schools were a major  improvement over the deplorable buildings where black children previously went to school. Agriculture and home economics were taught in these schools.
