Janie Porter Barrett and the Virginia Industrial School for Colored Girls: Community Response to the Needs of African American Children.
Peebles-Wilkins, Wilma
Child Welfare, v74 n1 p143-61 Jan-Feb 1995
Discusses how during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a social ethos evolved among African American women that led to internal child welfare reform in legally segregated African American communities. Uses as an example the Virginia Industrial School for Colored Girls, founded in 1915, to describe these child welfare developments. (TM)
