Bracey, Virginia has a Rosenwald School, which was known as The Carroll- Boyd School. This was an African American School which was part of the Mecklenburg County School System. The school had electricity with 3 classrooms, 3 coal heaters, 2 small cloak rooms, and a kitchen.
The Bracey History Project is looking for stories, memories or older pictures about this school. I first learned about Rosenwald Schools in the Bracey Community’s write up, which was in the fall 2019 Lake Life Lake Gaston. I asked members of the Bracey Community Project about Rosenwald. I think Rosenwald Schools have an interesting and important history. I’m really glad that there may be preservation efforts underway for the building and I welcome people’s stories about the school.
A huge thank you to Melissa Hartman and Willie Bennett for their help with this post.
