PD 6780 – Russell School Event

February 17 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

“In the early 1900s, more than 800 Rosenwald Schools – schools for Black students built through philanthropic donations and funds raised by activists – were built in North Carolina. This number was, by far, more than any other state, however only a few of these school buildings still exist today.

To help preserve their history, Kevin Oliver, head of the Department of Teacher Education and Learning Sciences in the NC State College of Education, and Associate Professor Angela Wiseman have created a virtual tour of the Historic Russell School, which is the last Rosenwald School remaining in Durham County.

Join us in this open-to-the-public event in some of Hill Library’s exciting high-tech spaces to learn more about the Rosenwald Schools and the Russell School through a panel interview with individuals who attended the school, virtual reality tours via headset, a gallery exhibition of 360-degree photos of the school, and a multimedia exhibit with interviews, videos, and photos.”
