SCHOOLS and EDUCATION

Schools for African-American children hold a prestigious place in the freedom movement. One and two room school houses for “colored” children dotted the Orange county landscape, beginning in the late 1800’s, in the midst of a segregated society. In 1968, Orange County schools became desegregated.
