Rockville’s Role in the Education of African Americans, is a Black History Month talk by historian Ralph Buglass and co-sponsored by Peerless Rockville and Friends of the Library, Rockville Memorial Chapter. Admission is free.
Until the mid-20th century, schools in Rockville – as well as Montgomery County – were segregated. Rockville has played a major part in ever-increasing educational opportunities for African-American students, from a post-Civil War Freedmen’s Bureau school in a church basement to the only high school for black students in the county. In between, William B. Gibbs, Jr., a Rockville educator, and his then-little-known attorney, Thurgood Marshall, paved the way for equal pay for black teachers in one of the first legal challenges to segregated schooling. Buglass recounts this important chapter in American history.
