Ridgeley Rosenwald School Annual Black History Month Celebration

Sunday, February 24, 2019

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.

Come and celebrate the 92nd Anniversary 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.

This year’s program will feature a keynote address from Mr. Curtis Valentine, Member-At-Large,
Prince George’s County Board of Education. The program will also include the recognition of former students of Ridgeley School and the recognition of those who attended, or taught, at a Rosenwald School who are members of the Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Refreshments will be served following the program.
