In Black and White

Based on a True Story of two idealist school teacher/humanitarians, who risk all in rural S.W. VA to begin the first Negro school (post – civil war) when memories and prejudices are still raw. Based on my Paternal 4th Grandfather Jonas Harmon Powers, his wife Jerusha. Jonas’ Great Grandmother was Edith Adams (who married Jacob Powers). Edith was the first cousin of President John Adams. Their Grandson Jonas migrated from Massachusetts to VA in 1745.
