Influential Louisa Women from the Early Twentieth Century

Description

Lucille Holt, born in 1883, became an influential woman in early twentieth century Louisa County. Born with a light skin tone, she was sometimes seen as a white woman and other times as a black woman. In 1916, Lucille Holt was appointed the first Jeanes Supervisor for Louisa County Negro Schools, which assisted teachers in improving the educational progress for African Americans. Supervisors often advocated teacher’s salary increases and professional growth, longer school terms and better instructional materials. Further proving her influential nature and aspirations, Lucille Holt registered to vote on October 1, 1920, only two months after the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment.
