I visited the Ridgeley Rosenwald School in Capitol Heights, MD to work on a post for my blog. The school is an African-American heritage site in Prince George’s County. Its managed by the Black History Program at Abraham Hall (BHP@AH) and the Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
I had a wonderful time at the school! Mae Williams (a member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority) gave me a tour of the school. Her enthusiasm was equally matched by her extensive knowledge of the school’s history and renovation.
I also met a woman who actually attended the school as a child. She could point to herself in one of the old photos mounted on the school’s wall. It was a pleasure meeting you Shirley Taylor (Spriggs)!
