Now, continuing this afternoon, August 30, 2018 - Summer, 1964 - 'The Lay Out' of the 'New Land'. Part IV
Being 'held-back' to 'catch up with the Northern students' was not going to happen to this 'li'l Miss Tidy', who had given up her lunch pail 'weapon of choice', after coming to faith in Jesus Christ previously on August 12, 1956! Oh, no way!
I had attended a school in North Carolina where the 'colored' teachers were dedicated. They were aware that the school books were out of date, but, because many had relatives in the Northern areas, they would visit, or get shipments from them, which they used to supplement the 'old' text books, in their Southern 'segregated' classrooms. For you see, the 'new' text books always went to the 'white schools', and the books from the 'white schools' were transferred as 'used but in curriculum' books, to the 'colored schools'. In this way, the 'colored children' were always behind in the topics, and when tested, would test lower, for the tests were based on the information from the 'new' textbooks, to which the colored children did not have access to the information.
This is how the 'system' would guarantee that the 'colored' children were always presented as 'inferior' to their white counterparts of the same age and grade, and or course not able to progress to colleges or to higher paid jobs - ever kept on the farm or housekeeping type jobs or other 'unskilled-labor jobs', earning poor pay.
So, as much as was possible, we were getting much of the newer information of the 'new textbooks'. And, we were taught to research topics further with encyclopedias and such were homework assignments. The parents were deeply involved with the education of their children, even if they themselves could not read or write. This was so that the next generation would have a better chance to be more 'fruitful' in life.
The textbooks were as much as 5 - 7 or more years behind in editions. And this is why the Southern Academic Scores on National Tests were lower than those for the children in the North, where the 'tests' were set, based on the newer textbooks. Egads! Yes, the Northern Distribution System was aware of this 'strategy'. But, as you will see, the 'impact' would be demonstrated in the 'schools'. No hypocrisy, please.
This is why I say, whether North or South in the United States, racial discrimination was fully approved. And, this is why there was the 'civil rights' 'push' to attend 'white schools' in the South.
Getting 'up North', did not carry any 'guarantees' of 'racial equality'. Oh, my, no. But, the fight was 'different', and the KKK was not 'obvious'. But, there were other 'physical hurdles', as I would find out!
Yes, it was 'extra effort', on our parts, but for my generation, 'education' was the 'key' for 'the advancement of the race', to be able to accomplish more than hourly work in factories, housekeeping or on the farm, to marry and rear a family, to be able to 'purchase a home', not only 'rent'. To be able to make enough money to have some to save, for the children's future development. Oh, this was 'the dream', that we just could not miss as it was the first time for 'Negroes' in America.
Our parents were 'wise', seeing the opportunities they did not have, and determined to give us every opportunity available, even if it meant, relocating to the North. They did not see any 'sacrifice' to great, for our 'advancement'.
Our responsibility? All we had to do, was to be willing to 'apply ourselves', accordingly. And, for me, personally, when I came to 'the faith', the LORD had said that I would 'one day stand where His Son had stood' and 'one day I would stand in the so-called 'halls of justice' representing Him'. We are all capable of doing God's will. No, I was not appointed to be a 'surgeon', but, I was appointed to become an attorney, using my 'brain', advocating for 'justice' in accordance with 'law', 'ethics' and 'morality'. We are each prepared to do that which He calls us to be about, and are to be 'personally responsible' to do so.
So, no way was I going to prolong such a future call on my life! 'Humptf!'
This I would come to understand was 'the gift of faith', not just for 'salvation', but, from the Holy Spirit for everything I would be appointed to do. I was given the 'spiritual gift' of 'just taking God at His Word', 'trusting Him to bring it about', 'accomplishing it through me'. [Isaiah 55:11; 1 Corinthians 12:9; Philippians 4:13]. I did not need to know - 'how'. I knew that He was able.
But, it was my responsibility to prepare to enter into the 'open doors' of college and then, law school, by going to and doing my very best in - high school, preparing for all entrance exams. [No miracle here, folks!]
More during my first summer, up 'North' when we post on Tuesday, September 4, 2018. As you 'reminisce' with me, do some of your own 'past'. You may find that it was not as bad as you previously thought. I pray that you see the 'good' from your past, in the perspective of how God works in our lives, in the Precious, Most Blessed Name of of Jesus Christ. Amen. Amen.
