African-American History in Garland: George Washington Carver School
"When Garland ISD was founded in 1901, there were no schools for African American children. Schools for black children in Garland began showing up prior to 1920, eventually leading to official public schools such as the Garland Colored School, Garland Negro School and ultimately the George Washington Carver School. This film attempts to tell the partial story of some of the students and staff who attended and worked at these schools through complete GISD integration in 1970."
"With $900,000 in floor-to-ceiling renovations, Carver Senior Center is the perfect blend of history and a modern service to residents. Just ask our Congressman, City Council or, most importantly, our seniors, including the alumni who once walked the grounds as students at George Washington Carver School. View the true joy of the grand re-opening at 222 Carver St."
