From 1936 to 1955 the black children in tiny St. Gabriel, Louisiana had one room to go to for an education. They had no free lunches, no gadgets and very little help from the state. With the help of one remarkable woman they did more than managed to get by. Sometimes we forget how blessed we are today. We gripe and grumble about little things. Just think of what this teacher, the students and the parents did to make this school a place of learning in spite of what we today would call impossible conditions. Awesome! With all our advantages today we’ve come such a long way.
