  2. Tuesdays at Two: Susan Webb

    February 26, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Cooper Library Meeting Room

    Susan Webb: “Thank you, Mr. Rosenwald: A Chapter from the History of Alabama Education and African-American Education in the South” Using photographs, documented interviews, historical artifacts, audience participation of authentic recitation lessons and tales of early American education, America’s Traveling Schoolmarm will transport you to the legacy of Julius Rosenwald and the schools he helped build in the back roads of Alabama. Julius Rosenwald, the early 20th-century president of Sears, Roebuck and Company, was a German-Jewish immigrant, philanthropist and trustee of Tuskegee Institute. From 1912 until 1932, his generous caring and compassion for the education of 663,615 African-American children helped blanket 15 Southern states with over 5,300 school buildings, 407 of which were built in Alabama. His collaborations and grassroots community efforts resulted in a program which constructed schoolhouses, teacher homes and industrial high schools across the South.
