Rosenwald School Legacy Conference

Every other year, the UNCW’s Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion, Upperman African American Cultural Center, History Department and Watson College host a conference on African Americans and Education. Started in 2009 by local teacher and historian Claudia Stack, this conference is designed to examine the history of education for African Americans in the southeast and to evaluate current educational contexts for African American students in public schools. It also examines the history of schools started with money from the Julius Rosenwald fund.

The 2015 conference will be held at the Watson College on April 10.
