Jefferson Elementary, Venable Elementary, Burnley-Moran Elementary, Walker Elementary, and Lane High School

So I did not want to leave Jefferson. That was coming up to be my last year and all that. And I just wanted to spend my time at Jefferson. It was total, total amazement. I had never been in a situation before where I was the only Black in the classroom. To be accepted was very difficult, because it was probably something new also.
