Ridgeley Rosenwald School Black History Month Celebration

Sunday, February 25, 2018

For inquiries regarding this program, please contact the M-NCPPC Black History Program at 240-264-3415. This event is sponsored by the Delta Ridgeley Task Force of the Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Join us for the Ridgeley Rosenwald School’s annual Black History Month celebration, honoring the 91st anniversary of the Ridgeley Rosenwald School. This year’s program features a keynote address from Christopher Deutsch, the great-great-grandson of Julius Rosenwald. The program also includes a special recognition of former students of the Ridgeley Rosenwald School.

The school opened in 1927 as Colored School No. 1 in Election District 13. It was one of 27 schools in Prince George’s County built with financial assistance from the Julius Rosenwald Fund, which provided money to help build nearly 5,000 African-American schools in the South during the early twentieth century. Refreshments will be served. 

Ages: All ages are welcome
