Abstract

This interview was conducted by Dr. George Garrison with Henrietta Moore. Moore sheds light on the history of Emmett Scott High School (ESHS) and her experience attending, and later teaching at, several of York County’s all-Black Rosenwald Schools like Carroll School. Henrietta Griffin Moore (1919-2021), a longtime educator, attended West End Elementary School, ESHS, and Friendship Junior College in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Named for Emmettt Scott, an advisor to Booker T. Washington, secretary-treasurer of Howard University, and prominent educator, ESHS (1920-1970) was an African American school that served the Black community of Rock Hill, South Carolina. Following the integration of S.C. public schools, Emmettt Scott closed its doors in 1970. In addition, Moore recounts the impact of the Friendship Nine, Civil Rights Movement, and segregation, especially as a Black woman living in the Jim Crow South.
