This photo shows the packed crowd for the latest community talk sponsored by Madison County Libraries and the Rotary Club of Madison County. 


Willa Wyatt gave an update on the progress toward rehabilitation of the historic Mars Hill Anderson Rosenwald School.

Built in 1928, this school is the last one standing in Western North Carolina of the over 5000 Rosenwald schools built throughout the southeast to serve segregated African American students. 


When completed, the building will serve as a community cultural center and an interpretative museum to enhance education and understanding of black history.
