This afternoon, we visited the Shiloh Rosenwald school, a three-room schoolhouse that was a haven for young Black students in the mid 20th century. The school helped its students to be educated, cultured, form a sense of community, and gain many other helpful talents for later life.
There, we met four wonderful, wise women, Felicia, Mary, Kate, and Shirley. These kind women seemed completely joyous upon our arrival, and welcomed us into their past with warmth. They explained their experiences throughout their time at the school, expressions filled with wonder and reminiscence, a sort of nostalgia.
It was thoroughly a splendid visit, and they invited us to return anytime in the future, the invitation extended to our families.
