           national rosenwald schools conference
    kellogg hotel and conference center at tuskegee university
               june 14–16, 2012 | tuskegee, alabama

  In the early 20th century, Rosenwald Schools served as centers
      of community activity and symbols of pride among the
   populations they served. Now, Rosenwald Schools are being
  reclaimed as vital hubs of activity, to tell the stories of African
American education and advancement, and to preserve the modest
 remaining structures of this monumental educational movement.
            gather with us to honor the legacy
       and look to the future of rosenwald schools.

                                                                        gReeleyvIlle, wIllIAmSbuRg. photo couRteSy fISk uNIveRSIty ARchIveS
Dear Colleagues:
few things are more fundamental in the life of a child
than a school.

booker t. washington and Julius Rosenwald recognized
this, and their visionary partnership changed the future
for thousands of African American children living in the
rural South a century ago.

fewer than 15 percent of the 5,300 original Rosenwald Schools
remain, but they are fortunate to have some very dedicated champions:
hundreds of local preservationists throughout the rural South who have
stepped forward to ensure that the schools—and the important stories
they tell—live on for the next generation.

the National trust is proud to support these efforts through the first-ever
nationwide gathering of Rosenwald School champions. the conference
provides equal parts inspiration and education, offering plenty of
opportunity to share ideas and stories, as well as practical advice in key
areas, such as fundraising, programming and building restoration.

I hope you will mark your calendars for June 14–16, 2012, and join
us and our many partners at tuskegee university for what promises to
be a memorable celebration of the Rosenwald legacy and 100 Years of
Pride, Progress and Preservation.

    A century after Booker T. Washington met Julius Rosenwald and began a partnership
    for education that changed the nation, we meet again at the campus where it all began.
    The National Trust for Historic Preservation presents 100 Years of Pride, Progress and
    Preservation featuring education sessions, documentary films and poster presentations,
    along with hands-on workshops and tours to help novices and seasoned preservationists

             The National Trust for Historic Preservation produced
             this program with the environment in mind.

    In the early 20th century, Rosenwald
    Schools served as centers of community
    activity and symbols of pride among the
    populations they served. Now, Rosenwald
    Schools are being reclaimed as vital hubs of
    activity, to tell stories of African American
    education and advancement, and to
    preserve the modest remaining structures
    of this monumental educational movement.
    gather with us to honor
    the legacy of rosenwald schools .

  100 Years of Pride,Progress& Preservation
