Garden: 392 Emma E. Booker, Educator

Posted By noemi javier, Saturday, December 7, 2013

Garden: 392 Emma E. Booker Educattor

Location of Garden: 1 Costa Del Sol Blvd, Miami FL 33178

Dedication:

Emma E. Booker was an African American educator who founded the first black school located in Sarasota County, Florida. Her passion for teaching began by the age of 14. During her teaching she would teach children she only earned roughly $25 a month. African American children back then did not have tradition desk to sit and study, instead they could only use orange creates and squeezed into one classroom. The reason why I dedicate a garden to her was because she was people that open education up no matter the color of your skin. Allowing children have an education is a subject that should not be thought twice, however back in those years African Americans did not have the same privileges as the whites.
