Description: Vocational text 4
Full text: In each issue of the yearbook, the Washingtonian, seniors listed their club activities and post-graduation ambitions. Students’ ambitions often reflected their time in vocational programs, and consequently had gendered implications. Common ambitions for girls included working as a seamstress or beautician, while boys listed jobs such as brickmason and auto mechanic. In these instances, the preferred careers directly tie to single-gender classes and trade programs at Booker T. Washington.
