New York City Landmarks Colored School No. 4, Securing a Testament to Black Education and American History

- Advertisement -spot_imgspot_img

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission has recognized Colored School No. 4, a yellow-brick structure in Manhattan’s Chelsea district, as a protected landmark. The school, built in 1849, played an essential role in educating Black kids in the age of racial segregation in public schools. The landmark status secures the preservation of this historic place following years of effort by historian Eric K. Washington and local organizations.

This decision is highly significant for the Black and BIPOC communities since it recognizes the school’s position as a safe haven for students during the New York Draft Riots in 1863. There is a direct connection between the history of the building, the fight for equal education, and the achievements of prominent persons such as Sarah J.S. Tompkins Garnet, the first Black female principal. By preserving Colored School No. 4, New York City celebrates Black Americans’ persistence and contributions.

The city has allocated $6 million to renovate the structure, demonstrating its dedication to protecting its heritage. Generations to come will learn about the struggles and successes of Black students who attended the school as a result of the proposed repairs. This landmark designation is part of a more significant national push to confront painful aspects of American history, particularly those relating to the Black experience. By preserving and commemorating the legacy of the Colored School, New York City serves as a model for other communities attempting to embrace their historical narratives.

In your opinion, how does the landmark designation of Colored School No. 4 contribute to the preservation of Black history and the representation of African American experiences in American history? You know we love hearing from you!
