Thank you for sharing Camila's First Day and the history of the Blackwell School with your young learners.

Feel free to explore this website to learn more history of the Blackwell School. You can find former students telling their own stories, read our nomination for the National Register of Historic Places, and watch a documentary about life in a segregated community in the 1950s.

As of March 2021 we are in the pilot phase, reaching out to teachers and schools willing to help us make this educational product even better. 

By summer 2021 we hope to have final versions of these products available here. Please share with anyone who might be interested; these materials are free to everyone because everyone deserves to love the skin they are in!


Sharing stories, honoring memories, celebrating the rich Hispanic culture and history of Marfa.
