Rosenwald to address Unitarians
On Sunday, September 23, Bob Rosenwald will speak at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Rappahannock (UUFR). His talk will discuss Julius Rosenwald and his role in spearheading the construction of some 5,000 public schools for African-Americans in 15 southeastern states from 1912 through 1932; the national Rosenwald School program, its origins, scope, and organization; and the program in Virginia, focusing on the Northern Neck and the Julius Rosenwald High School in Reedville. A history of Julius Rosenwald High School will be presented, along with past and current efforts to acquire, restore, and reuse the school.
The UUFR meets every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at 366 James Wharf Road in White Stone. Coffee and conversation will follow the service.
