MORE ABOUT US
Rosenwald Center advocates for preservation of historic African American resources. We uplift the histories thereof and advocate for economic, social and equitable opportunities for all.
We are a Community Development, 501C-3 nonprofit organization. We started our mission in 1997 as Spectrum for Living and in 1999 after advocating for the saving, restoration and preservation of the only high school in Greene County, built for African American Children. We later incorporated as Rosenwald Center to uplift that mission. We were instrumental in the historical survey of Zachariah School and completed survey information for a potential historic district “The Corner”. Rosenwald Center renovated and established a Kid’s Cafe’ at 423 West Harper St, which was home to our workforce development center, a community place for men uplifting the Bible and supporting young men. The Darden building at 108 Kingold Blvd, housed our Summer Camp/After School programs and Museum in Schools program. To name a few. More Information will be provided on our site.
