Me. From the Children of the Deep South Comes a Cry for Help that Cannot be Ignored.
Heine, Lea; Mae, Hattie
The plight of many children of the Deep South, their personal and social problems, is revealed through the experiences of a VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) volunteer. The volunteer spent one academic year, 1966-67, in the VISTA program as a school tutor and then returned on her own in the summer of 1968 to offer additional educational services. During these two periods time was spent with on Negro girl, Hattie Mae. Various sources of data provide the biographical and background information of the child. Anecdotal records and drawings are a part of this report. This information is compared and analyzed for the social, educational, and personal growth of the student. The document concludes with a brief resume of the events and feelings experienced by the Negro child as she spent one week in the tutor's home in Wisconsin. (DB)
