Save the Date! January 19th, 2016

In January the Concord Museum will be reopening for the New Year with a brand new exhibit.

Education for All: The Rosenwald Schools of Cabarrus County will focus on schools funded by Julius Rosenwald of Sears, Roebuck, and Company for the education of African American students. 767 total schools were built in North Carolina through the Rosenwald Fund, and 10 of those schools were located within Cabarrus County.

The exhibit will highlight the known Rosenwald Schools in Cabarrus County with particular focus on their building and their impact on the communities they served.

The exhibit will be on display through March 11, 2016.
