Title: The Louisburg Rosenwald School: Franklin County Training School / Riverside High School
Author: Cubbage, John Hadley
Advisors: Dr. Kenneth H. Brinson, Jnr., Committee Chair
Abstract: The purpose of this research has been to tell the story of the Rosenwald school that served African American children in Louisburg, North Carolina during segregation, and the school?s impact upon those students and the community. Former students and faculty members were interviewed, and state archives, school board minutes, collections, books, the internet, and the local newspaper were analyzed to gather data which fell into nine major themes. Data revealed that the school staff, through every available means, provided a caring and strong disciplinary environment with emphasis upon learning and citizenship. Struggles common to segregation were revealed. Former students felt that the viable school culture and pride were destroyed by the manner whereby desegregation was executed. Data revealed problems and responses, some of which are comparable to, and may provide guidance toward, correct applications for current educational difficulties.
