8th grade education

8thgrade.jpgNot only were schools in the United States segregated 100 years ago, but the black schools only went up to 8th grade. I did not know this until I read the historical marker at the site on Sweet Auburn Avenue where a school that went beyond 8th grade, run by black people, used to stand. There’s so much I don’t know.
