Title

Rosalind Silverman Andrews Collection Finding Aid

Description

Rosalind Andrews (then Rosalind Silverman) was a Queens College student who volunteered with the Student Help Project, tutoring under-served children in both Queens and Virginia. In the summer of 1963, she and the other members of the project traveled to Farmville, Virginia, to spend six weeks teaching the African American children of Prince Edward County. These children had been denied formal education since 1959, when the county defunded and closed its public schools rather than comply with court-mandated racial integration. The collection includes newspaper articles, classroom work by students, correspondence, a flyer, and a photograph.
