Burritt Museum Trip
4th Grade graders got to see the Underground Railroad and Slavery Escape Simulation. They learned about the Rosenwald Schools built in the early 20th century as a solution to the scarcity of schools for African-Americans in the rural South at that time. The school-building program was the idea of educator Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) who approached Julius Rosenwald, (1862-1932), the president of Sears, Roebuck and Company. The result stimulated the building of over 5,000 schools, vocational workshops, and teachers’ homes in the South. They also learned how to make dolls from corn shucks.
