Warwick Lecture Series: Maury County Historian JoAnn McClellan

June 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Warwick Lecture Series- Maury County Historian JoAnn McClellan

Heritage Foundation of Williamson County, TN – Education in Rural African American Communities: The Rosenwald Schools

JoAnn McClellan will share the history of how Maury County’s education system has evolved since emancipation in 1863. She will paint a picture of what it was like when schools were segregated and the dynamic impact of Rosenwald schools. Great educators like Rosenwald Superintendents Stella Howse Smith and Johnnie Belle Fulton made a powerful difference. She’ll also talk about Florence Ella Hatton’s fight for her teaching position and how it shined a light on how Maury County was a secretly noncompliance school district and full desegregation wasn’t realized for 16 years after the Supreme Court had ruled that segregated public schools were unconstitutional. Come and learn how Maury County Schools have changed over the years with the many educational opportunities offered in the past as well as today.
