Homewood Elementary Schools

We talk about Shades Cahaba a lot on this podcast for obvious reasons. With a school that taught grades 1-12 you get a little tunnel vision and start to think this is all there was in Homewood. Not true. There were other schools and we are going to talk about a few of those on this episode of the Shades Cahaba Oral History Project.

A special thanks to author Sheryl Summe for doing all the hard work in her book “Homewood: Life of a City.” I really leaned on the information in the book for this episode and it wouldn’t have happened without it. I left out a ton of information. 

If you can get your hands on a copy of the book, take a deep dive and read it from front to back. I guarantee you that you will learn some things you didn’t know. 

The Shades Cahaba Oral History Project is sponsored by ShawnWrightArt.com. When you go there, look for the link to Shades Cahaba and you will find shirts and accessories featuring the exclusive Shades Cahaba Centennial logo. This logo is based on an image on the cover of “The Owl” yearbook back in the 1920s. It has been updated to celebrate the 100 years of the school and it helps us to offset the cost of producing and publishing this podcast. You can find a link to the store on the podcast home page at shadescahabahistory.com

But what if you didn’t go to Shades Cahaba and don’t want a Shades Cahaba item. There is plenty of artwork and accessories to choose from. Just visit Shawnwrightart.com.
