Keswick Colored School

Students line up outside the Colored Graded School near Keswick, in Albemarle County, in 1915. Jackson Davis, the Virginia field agent for the General Education Board from 1915 to 1929, took this photograph, one of about 6,000 he made documenting the conditions of rural schools and the industrial education of African Americans. The building depicted is now a private residence.
