Inscription.  Completed in 1923 on Berlin Avenue under the Rosenwald Program, which was instrumental in the education of African Americans in the early 20th century. The fund provided matching grants for more than 5,000 schools, shops, and teachers' residences built in 15 southern states from 1917-1932. Modern and progressive, Rosenwald plans set the standard in rural school construction. The Pumphrey school housed and trained students from grades 1-8.
