One is reminded of the intent of the account. Those citizens with a heritage which can be traced to the schooling of black youngsters in the communities of Alleghany County, Clifton Forge, and Covington, can be proud of and grateful for the accomplishments of those educators and patrons who worked diligently for their children.
This account has more thoroughly covered the events during the years of segregated schooling. It was during this time that the black population can claim virtually total responsibility for the education of their youngsters. The part played by philanthropists was helpful and the provisions of local school boards, however inadequate, were vital to their efforts. Yet the success of black education was a result of the commitment of the black community.
