This outline is intended to give a brief idea of the progress of Negro education in Grimes County from 1887 to 1957. The author of this study has identified with Negro Public Schools of Grimes County for a period of more than fifty years, and have worked steadily and earnestly as a Negro educator in various schools of Grimes County since 1887. This interest impels him to attempt to develop this subject. For a period of twenty years from 1887 to 1907, the progress in Negro education in Grimes County had an upward trend, although the progress has been very slow. The principal agency by and through which education was sought was the public school. Prom 1908 to the present time, progress in a larger way has been made, and in this outline the writer shall try to develop these facts.
