Hockessin Colored School #107C: A Seldom Told Story - Part Two

Join Dr. Edwards, author of Hockessin Colored School #107C, and discover early 20th century implementations and nuances of Delaware's statewide numerical districts. Explore the State of Delaware's collaborative efforts that established a tier of second-class institutions of learning ABCs- albeit colored. Learn how the colored community of Hockessin owned and operated their distinct school system for nearly one hundred years (1829-1919). This Delaware seldom-told story is among the nation's unsung heroes of public education with a life and legacy that spans over 180 years. Part two of a three-part series.
