A Tale of Two Schools: Eddy School: The Foundations of a Community

Oct 16 2019 - 10:00am to Dec 20 2019 - 4:00pm
The Sallie Ellis Davis House

Eddy School: The Foundations of a Community focuses on the origins of the Eddy School, its formation from community advocacy, funds from the American Missionary Association, and teachers from the Freedman's Bureau. We then explore the conditions and curriculum at Eddy through the lens of being the only school for African American's in Baldwin County through most of the country's period of segregation. Ties between the community and the school are discussed before we look at the end of the Eddy School and see a taste of the upcoming spring exhibit with an introduction to the Carver School.

The Sallie Ellis Davis House is open 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays and by appointment. Call 478-445-5889 to make an appointment.

Tickets are $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and students, children 6 and under are free, GC students, faculty and staff are free with ID.
