Preserve History, Ignite Change: Support Restoring the Eleanor Roosevelt School
Why This Matters: The Eleanor Roosevelt School played a pivotal role as one of the Rosenwald Schools which educated over 660,000 African American children across 17 states. Now, we have an incredible opportunity to breathe new life into this historic landmark and use it to create positive change in our community.
Our Vision: Our goal is to restore this historic treasure and turn it into a thriving community hub. We envision a revitalized school with a 360 immersive projection theater, showcasing the rich history and culture of the era. Additionally, we plan to curate an art collection from artists connected to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Julius Rosenwald, and Booker T. Washington.
The Journey Ahead: This project will unfold in two phases, with an estimated total cost of approximately $5.7 million dollars. We need your support every step of the way.
