Everybody’s baby

Mrs. Harriet Jenkins was a teacher at Cullers Run School when John was just a baby. On many occasions, Mrs. Jenkins would bring John to school with her. She would take the benches and turn them around to form a makeshift playpen for him. Each of the children would take turns taking care of him throughout the day.

as told by John Jenkins, Jr.’s widow, Geneva Jenkins
