My Father’s Early School Days
This blog info was taken for my entry date July 5, 1982.
My dad told me that he used to walk 5 miles to school.
He got up at about 5am. There were 5 blacks in school.
There was about 20 people in all.
The teacher eat a lot, made them work, read out loud.
My father mentioned that the teacher had a ball “of hair” on her head.
They had to bring their own lunch, if your didn’t, you wouldn’t to eat.
The school was from 8 am to 3 pm.
I can’t recall which school my dad said he went too.
There were only 5 blacks in this class…
This was well before desegregation.
Thanks for reading.
