(Former) Colored School No. 3
(Former) Colored School No. 3
Williamsburg, Brooklyn The former Colored School No. 3 schoolhouse is a one-and-half story red brick building located in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. Built in 1879-81, it was designed by architect Samuel B. Leonard, the Superintendent of Buildings and Repairs for the Brooklyn Board of Education from 1859 to 1879. The only known "colored" school building remaining in Brooklyn, it evokes that city's policy of race-based school segregation during much of the nineteenth century. Romanesque Revival in style, the school building has arched window openings and a prominent entrance with large keystones, a raised central section with a gable and blind arcade, corbelled brickwork, and dentil courses. The exterior of the building remains largely intact. Colored School No. 3 as an institution evolved from the town of Williamsburgh's original African Free School, which had been founded prior to 1841. The school was taken over by the Board of Education of the City of Brooklyn in 1855, when it was given the name "Colored School No. 3." It was renamed P.S. 69 in 1887, and was later absorbed by the school system of the City of New York after the consolidation of 1898. The Board of Education relinquished control of the building in 1934. In 1873, the state passed the Civil Rights Act, which was intended to end segregation in public life, but it was not uniformly enforced. The black community itself was divided over the implementation of the law as it pertained to education. The supporters of integration argued that separate schools were a humiliation to their race, while the segregationists contended that the colored schools were beneficial to black students and the black community. One concern of the latter group was the fate of the black principals and teachers who staffed the colored schools. These positions were among the few professions available for African-Americans, who were generally forced into low-paying, low-status jobs, regardless of their qualifications. It was feared that this career outlet for African-Americans and the function of these professionals as role models in the community would disappear. Partly as a consequence of this division within the black community, the Brooklyn Board did not act on integration, and the schoo! districts continued to bar black children from attending the regular public schools. In spite of numerous court challenges, the Brooklyn Board of Education remained firmly committed to its segregation policy, and with the support of some black parents, began to rebuild obsolete colored school buildings. The Colored School No. 3 schoolhouse was replaced by the existing structure in 1879, and as late as 1883, a year before the Board of Education changed its policy on segregation, a new building for Colored School No. 1 in Fort Greene was opened. The New York City Board of Education ignored the Civil Rights Act of 1873, but in 1878 adopted an incremental desegregation plan that would have closed the colored schools by 1883; the limit was later changed to 1889. However, provisions were not made for the transfer of black teachers and principals to the regular public schools upon their closing. Black citizens and the Teachers' Association protested, obtaining state legislation in 1883 that protected the jobs of the existing black teachers and prevented the dosing of the colored schools, while ordering that they admit pupils of all races. However, the Board only partially conformed to the law, and several of the colored schools continued to be segregated. Nevertheless, the legislation had the practical effect of gradually bringing about the end of officially segregated schools as the "changing patterns of black residency left most of the schools . . . poorly located for serving black families."'" In 1882, Seth Low, the new mayor of Brooklyn and a reformer, appointed the first African-American to the Board of Education, Philip A. White," who became chairman of the committee in charge of the colored schools.'* White, who opposed forced segregation, was instrumental in implementing a change the following year which decreed that no public school could exclude black students but that the colored schools would remain open to children whose parents chose these schools. White also abhorred the term "colored school," and in 1887, the three colored schools were finaliy renamed to conform with the numbering system of the other public schools, Nos. 67, 68, and 69. respectively. However, they continued to serve black students only and to be categorized by the Board of Education as colored schools.'^ By 1890, the number of black students attending Brooklyn's other public schools exceeded those in the "colored" schools. The first attempt to integrate one of the colored schools with an existing public school occurred in 1893, when P.S. 68, originally Colored School No. 2, was merged, after much debate, with the nearby P.S. 83 i

View also large ! The museum of the city of Mechelen (Schepenhuis) in Flanders, Belgium posesses a very rare and beautiful collection of "enclosed gardens" (in Dutch "besloten hofjes", in Latin "hortus conclusus") made by nuns in the first decades of the 16th century. It was a speciality of the nuns (Augustinessen - gasthuiszusters) and beguins of Mechelen to make such wealthy scenes in cabinets : late gothic, wooden and painted puppets (of Our Lady, or Christ, or saints and other figures), silk flowers, reliquaries, textile etc... The "hortus conclusus" is a symbol ot the mystical garden of paradise, it also stands for the "clausure" of a cloister, for virginity, for devotion to Christ. Nuns were "brides of Christ" (that's why they wear a veil, consider it as a brides' veil). This picture : a hortus conclusus/besloten hofje/enclosed garden with St Ursula (center), Elisabeth (on the left) and Catherine (on the right with a sword), made ca. 1520-1530.
