The Jefferson High School for Colored students (1926-1951) published a year book each year between 1940 and 1951. Within the pages of these books the many accomplishments of Jefferson’s student were chronicled. They are documents of success that do not just describe a school’s culture, but also give some sense of the aspirations of the larger black community that supported their children and their activities. The yearbook project proposes to make these important yet now fragile documents available to a wider audience through a searchable database that will be made available on-line and as part of the Heritage Center’s permanent exhibition Pride Overcomes Prejudice. The Jefferson School Yearbook project is made possible through a generous grant from Ting. We are now seeking interns to work on the project.
