BUILDING A STRONGER GADSDEN
The Carver Legacy Project
The City of Gadsden is pleased to announce the 2023 Carver Legacy Project honoring what should have been the graduating class of 1972. Carver High School was built in 1936 and was Gadsden’s first full 12-year public school for African American students. The school became a victim of desegregation efforts in 1971 with the closing of the school by the Gadsden Board of Education. This separated the 1971 junior class into various local high schools taking away their graduation as a class in the spring of 1972.
To honor the class of 1972, we will be placing two monuments with the names of all students that would have graduated that year. We hope you will take the opportunity to consider a sponsorship for the Carver Legacy Project. Your sponsorship would support bronze plaques placed on two gray granite monuments located in the courtyard of the Central-Carver Museum. We hope to show that by acknowledging the past, we can honor our fellow citizens and the legacy of Carver High School.
