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.
