UNDER THE KUDZU traces the history of two schools that African American communities built in cooperation with the Rosenwald Fund. During the segregation era African American families in the South paid their taxes, then often had to raise additional funds to obtain schools for their children. Despite being under-resourced, many of these schools developed reputations for academic excellence. UNDER THE KUDZU explores the sacrifice that African American communities made for education and illustrates that education is something that African American communities shaped and owned.
