Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Not Now

[Group of Girls Sitting Together in Church Pews]

Description:

Photograph of a group of seven girls sitting together at the back of a church in two rows of pews. The girls are all facing forward, and most are looking at the camera. There is a woman in a striped dress on the right-hand side of the image; she is holding a book and facing the group of girls. In front of her, there is a projector sitting on a table. There are two open windows and closed double doors in the background behind the girls. The foreground is made up of four more rows of empty pews. There is a handwritten note on the back of the photograph that reads, "Palacios, 1952 Training School".
