The chapter explores the second decade of quality school campaigns in Mobile. It argues that black Mobilians’ unwavering commitment to becoming a literate people in the face of adversity secured increased employment opportunities for non-white schoolteachers and newer school facilities, but funding remained the greatest obstacle in obtaining additional gains. By 1890, black Mobilians and their partners came to the shared realization that a renewed partnership with the federal government would overcome the remaining barriers in their quest for quality African American public education.
