100 Years of Pride, Progress and Preservation
Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, Alabama

Join us to celebrate the legacy and future of a monumental educational
movement— Rosenwald Schools!
A century after Booker T. Washington met Julius Rosenwald and began a
partnership for education that changed the nation, we will meet at the
campus where it all began - Tuskegee University. The National Trust
for Historic Preservation presents 100 Years of Pride, Progress and
Preservation featuring education sessions, documentary films and
poster presentations, along with hands-on workshops and tours to help
novices and seasoned preservationists alike get organized, tackle, and
finish their Rosenwald School projects. Plenary sessions, receptions,
the conference bookstore, and book signings will provide attendees
with plenty of networking opportunities, inspiring messages, and
exciting entertainment. The line-up of national speakers include Nikki
Giovanni, Dr. Mary Hoffschwelle, Dr. Peter Ascoli, and Robin
Washington Banks—more will be announced soon.
Learn, network, commemorate, and celebrate at the first National
Rosenwald Schools conference!
