Prize Possession: Negro mother teaching children numbers and alphabet in home of sharecropper, Transylvania, Louisiana, January 1939. (January 1939)


BEMA Network members (All):

Recently I had the unique experience to pass along a  framed copy of the historical photo below to a young man that assisted me in moving furniture with his father’s permission.  This photo was prominent in my home and was practically the first thing to be noticed besides my black and white photos of Miles Davis, Billy Eckstein, Nat King Cole, and Paul Robeson (I’ve had this for over thirty-years).

I emphasized that we as a people are only one or two generations away from what this loving, proud, and wonderful woman is instilling in her children.  That knowledge, education, and patience are the basic framework to achieving our goals and objectives for ourselves, family, and community.

Study the entire photo, pass along to your children, grandchildren, and friends. 

Peace.
