Description: Vocational text 3
Full text: Former residents of Ward One have discussed these skills in the context of their lives. Arthur Jones talked about how his carpenter father kept the family home in good condition. Ella Dixon Jones wrote in her autobiography that her mother worked as a launderer for white families. The vocational classes offered at Booker T. Washington thus functioned not only as skills building for the sake of skills building, but as an entry point into society, employment, and community life.
