Montgomery County once had 17 Rosenwald schools. Learn about the schools' remarkable impact and importance, along with then-and-now photos of the five buildings that survive.

Rosenwald schools are an inspiring chapter in the dark days of segregation.  They were public schools for Black students built all over the South in the early 20th century with funding from Julius Rosenwald, sometimes called "the biggest philanthropist you've never heard of."
