This storyboard does not have a description.
When I was jest a girl I 'members my mamma saying, "Things gonna be a lot better for my Ruth. My Ruth's smart and she's gonna grow up to be a teacher." But my mamma was wrong.
Why what happened?
She didn't figger on them bad hearts. No sir. And Mr. J.G. Jackson's daddy was one of them. "He's gone on his reward now, Mr. Eugene Jackson. Well, back then he used to keep my mamma's savings for her in his office safe. Every Saturday for so many years my mamma would go into Mr. Jackson's office in the back of the cotton gin with fifty or seventy-five cents in her hand and tell him, "Put this away, please, for my girl's education." Well, when the time came for me to go away to teachers school, there weren't but three dollars and twenty-five cents.
