Caroline County Training School Graduating Class

The graduating class of Caroline County Training School—an institution that trained teachers for African American schools—poses for a group portrait on May 19, 1921. The banner behind them reads, "We Finish To Begin." Jackson Davis, the Virginia field agent for the General Education Board from 1915 to 1929, took this photograph, one of about 6,000 he made documenting the conditions of rural schools and the industrial education of African Americans.
