Celebration of the 93rd Anniversary of Ridgeley Rosenwald School

Sunday, February 23, 2020

All Ages

Join us for the Ridgeley Rosenwald School’s annual Black History Month Celebration, which includes the recognition of the alumni of Ridgeley Rosenwald School. The school opened in 1927 as Colored School No.1 in Election District 13. It was one of 27 schools in Prince George’s County built with financial assistance from the Julius Rosenwald Fund, which provided money to help build nearly 5,000 schools for African Americans in the South during the early 20th century. The theme of this year’s program is “Ridgeley Rosenwald School Matters,” and features a keynote address from Dr. Dennis Doster, Manager of the Black History Month Program of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Refreshments will be served following the program. This program is sponsored by the Ridgeley Rosenwald School Task Force of the Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
