Grand Bay Elementary School For Colored

This is a picture of the Grand Bay Elementary School For Colored. It was constructed with help from the Rosenwald Fund and used to educate African-American children in the 1920s. The site is along U.S. Highway 90, east of Grand Bay, Alabama. Classes for grades one through six were conducted there until the 1940s when the school was consolidated with the school at Dixon Corner (photo from Fisk University).
