The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been recognized for its role in the historic opening of the restored Rosenwald Schoolhouse at the River Road African American Museum in Donaldsonville, Louisiana.
“It is important to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to connect with ancestors and to know our history,” said Elder Quinn S. Millington, an Area Seventy. “As children of God, we know there is a desire for each of us to belong and to be connected.”
The official opening of the schoolhouse was held on Saturday, October 21, 2023. It was attended by about 200 individuals of all ages, including past and present board members, graduates of Rosenwald schools from surrounding parishes and states, elected officials and faith community supporters from various religious backgrounds.
Among the esteemed attendees were State Representatives Ed Price and Ken Brass and local Church leaders from Baton Rouge.
The Church’s significant contribution to the restoration of the historic Rosenwald Schoolhouse involved a generous donation of over $73,000.
