FROM THE PUBLISHER
 
There was a time when colored school teachers were revered by practically everybody in their communities, both white and colored. Being a colored teacher in the South was a kind of a status. That day extended from its post-slavery beginning to World War I, for a period afterwards, certainly to World War II, and is said to exist in some remote places till today. These respected mentors were predominantly female and taught in public elementary schools where the bulk of southern colored school attendance was concentrated.

Traditionally these women were CCC— the “cream of the colored community,” their character without public flaws; dedication to the classroom their faith and religion. They were choice ladies sought after and targeted maritally by a coterie of colored men, many who had not completed the elementary grades, and were low wage earners, whose “thang” was to marry one of these women distinguished by their roll books and having principals as immediate bosses. Most of these men were decent, and some loved the women who would elevate them to statures they would never attain otherwise.
