Voices of Blackwell: Jessi Silva

Our latest series, “Voices of Blackwell,” is a partnership with the Blackwell School Alliance. The segregated institution was open from the late nineteenth century and closed in 1965 with the integration of schools in town. The final story we hear comes from Jessi Silva. She attended the school in the first grade, before moving to California. Silva returned to Marfa in the sixth grade.

The “Voices of Blackwell” series is produced by Diana Nguyen.
