Keswick Elementary School, Burley, and Albemarle High School

Education in the Black community didn’t include any, to my knowledge, much beyond the basic sciences, biology, chemistry, physics, but there were other things available. Geology was one of them. I hadn’t a clue about that. I remember in high school, sitting in, I think it was a geography class, and we talked about the morphology of streams and the aging of streams and the cycles that they go through. And I remember having this incredible high about thinking about things in long term, and I was motivated by that. But I wasn’t exposed to it anymore after that.
