About

The LongBlackLine.org is a 501c3 organization dedicated to preserving the story of these families and their teachers.


The LBL.org aims:
  • to organize and promote the participation of institutions of learning and art in the preservation of this eras artifacts which would include restoring as many remaining schools as possible.
  • to fund teacher training programs which promote the principles of the organization.
  • to raise and coordinate funding of film projects, educational programs and literature that promotes an understanding of the principles of the organization.

The LBL.org will aid other organizations and individuals in creating and maintaining websites, blogs, podcasting and other multimedia outlets to capture the history and stories that created this successful movement by capturing the voices of each school, its teachers and their students. As many of these students and virtually all teachers are no longer alive these stories will be second or third hand, so the collective memory of this generation will need  to be not only captured but the memories would be organized and validated in order to bring the entire story of this movement alive.

Principles

That a partnership of positive reinforcement between parent and child on a daily basis is crucial to building a Organization for success that ensures a child’s future.

That the past is important to remember and the future is important to keep in ones sights but that key to success for a child and the parent is to focus on the present.

That the world is more than about us individually and that we are a people of faith understanding that our greatest  responsibility is to create a world of tomorrow of children prepared to assume their role to raise their children for their world beyond.

That a community accomplishes more together than apart and that while individual achievement is crucial, our true worth in society is the contribution we can make to raise the community together.

That lifelong learning and the institutions and organizations that support lifelong learning are crucial to raising generations to come.
