Born in 1904 in Nashville TN, Dr. Horace Mann Bond was an educator, activist, and scholar.

Beginning in the fall of 1929, Dr. Bond participated in a survey of black schools and the achievement of black children in North Carolina, Louisiana and Alabama. During this time, Bond visited more than 700 urban and rural black schools and administered standardized tests to nearly ten thousand children. The project was sponsored by the Julius Rosenwald Fund. Later, Dr. Bond and his wife, Julia Washington Bond, studied an isolated rural community, Star Creek, Louisiana. The Bonds were directed to observe and report on black schools, social and economic conditions and race relations in the rural South. These photographs are products of those studies.

The Schoolhouse series is accompanied by Bond family photographs that bare a stark contrast to the children Dr. Bond was photographing at the time.

This show was brought to life through the collaboration of James Bond, son of Dr. Horace Mann Bond and Atlanta Master Printer, Barry Blackwell. We are honored as this is the first time these photographs have ever been printed and displayed to the public.
