Thanks to our newest partner, Wake Forest Historical Museum, an array of materials related to the DuBois School including yearbooks, student newspaper issues, posters, and a binder of DuBois School memories compiled by Myrlin Skinner are now available here and here.
The DuBois School was one of several African American schools in built in North Carolina that was funded by Julius Rosenwald. The school, which was later renamed to Wake Forest-Rolesville Middle School in the 1960s, is one of only five Rosenwald schools that are still visible today. The binder of materials compiled by Skinner is a wonderful resource for researching the DuBois school. It provides an in-depth look at the history of the school from materials such as letters from alumni, faculty names, photographs, yearbook scans, and newspaper clippings.
