Laying the Foundation for Research on African American Education in Loudoun County, Virginia:
An Interview with Larry Roeder
Before the Civil War, most of the South had only a basic public school system. After the War, the southern states established a dual educational system based on race. So what were the characteristics of a dual educational system? Researcher Larry Roeder and a host of volunteers have sought answers to that question through the collection, organization, and analysis of thousands of documents—all related to the education of African Americans in Loudoun County, Virginia, c. 1865 to 1941. Following is an interview by Lucy Townsend, editor of the Country School Journal and Larry Roeder, the principal investigator of this project. Roeder’s comments about the process of gathering papers may be useful to anyone interested in taking on a similar project.
