I just realized something. My father's mother had to quit teaching. I never realized that....it never registered in my consciousness. Only after listening to Cornel West speak about MLK and then reading that MLK's mother stopped teaching after she married and had children did it come to me. My grandmother married and proceeded to have thirteen children. School systems didn't allow married teachers to teach. Interesting. My other grandmother divorced..so I guess that was ok. LOL. Who knows. What messed up rules....
