Little Dixie Reader- Writer-1938-Southern Publisher-Inclusion of Black Children
Item #: NEW-0010202

Click image to enlarge
I was quite surprised when I thumbed through this worn little book that although it was printed in 1938 in Montgomery Alabama it pictured white and black children.  The authors were Ethel H Crumpton and Frances Spiller.  Crumpton was the Supervisor of Elementary Schools in Marengo County Alabama and Spiller was a first grade teacher in Birmingham Alabama.  Pages 6 through 75 features white children and some merely animals.  The writing exercise for the little story is on the left page.  Pages 76-89 features illustrations of black children. Having lived in Alabama during the 50-60's I imagine this was a bold experiment and it certainly has historical importance. Please view the scan to see the condition problems of the booklet.
