It may also depend on when, and perhaps what state/commonwealth you were in. Virginia, among other wonderful actions, closed down the schools when desegregation finally got around to being implemented. It was called Massive Resistance. As a white kid, I never had a black teacher until I was in 9th grade. That was in the mid 1970’s.

Any kid who grew up in the South in the 50’s through the 70’s knows darn well that the War between the States was a “war of economic sanction against the South” or a “war of Northern aggression”. I learned this “fact” in every grade I was in, 1st through 12th. I also remember being asked in first grade what I wanted to be when I grew up. I had two answers 1) a zoo keeper or 2) a horse breeder. I was gently laughed at and told girls couldn’t do such things and then given the choice of 1) teacher 2) secretary 3) nurse, until I got married. Machine learning designer/ Human factors in design (which is one of the things I became) wasn’t on the list. So they were sort of right. I didn’t become a zoo keeper or a horse breeder. Though my husband will tell you I have a zoo… In case it isn’t clear, I do NOT AGREE with the “Lost Cause”. I just grew up with it.
yep. That makes 10. my father was on of 18 full sibs. if you can’t half and step it goes up to 32. This is why Im one of two.
If Megs family is near me (The extreme South East Corner of NC) it will take nearly 9 hours to drive (without any pit stops) and nearly 450 miles to get to Cherokee NC. We have Spanish Moss and what is called Frogmore stew. We are part of the Gulla Geechee corridor https://gullahgeecheecorridor.org
