Mr. PAUL. Madam Speaker, on February 21 the Texas Delta Xi Chapter of the Honorary Educators Organization Alpha Delta Kappa will honor those Texas Delta Xi teachers who attended the H.O. Tanner School in Texas, and then returned to teach at H.O. Tanner after completing their education. H.O. Tanner was constructed in 1900 in order to ensure that Texas segregation laws did not prevent African- American children from obtaining a quality education.

Laws dictating what schools a child can and cannot attend, based solely on that childs race, are a shameful aspect of Americas history. It is hard to think of a better way to celebrate Black History Month than by honoring those who did not allow the burden of the Jim Crow laws stop them from obtaining an education, and then used their education to serve the children of their community by devoting their lives to teaching.
