Join the Museum of the Albemarle for History for Lunch at Home on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 12 p.m. Caroline Stephenson, independent producer of narrative films, documentary films, public service announcements, and documentary plays, presents the documentary Children Go Where I Send You that tells the story of the historic Mill Neck School in Hertford County, North Carolina that was severely damaged during Hurricane Irene in 2011. The documentary captures Mill Neck members, historians, and others on their journey to save this historic school.
Hertford County Public School students assisted in every phase of this documentary project from researching, to interviewing, to filming, and editing. The video also includes information about Hertford County's other nine Rosenwald schools, four of which remain standing today.
In 2002 the National Trust for Historic Preservation added Rosenwald Schools to its list of Most Endangered Historic Places. The goal of "Children Go Where I Send You" is to help preserve African American history for future generations before it is too late.
