This student film from the early 1960s documents some of the professional training offered to students at I.M. Terrell High School in Fort Worth. Produced by members of the school's camera club, the film captures students participating in various classes, learning everything from stenography and accounting to cosmetology and auto-mechanics. I.M. Terrell High School opened in 1882 as the East Ninth Street Colored School—the first free public school for African Americans in Fort Worth. The school closed in 1973 following the racial integration of Fort Worth's schools. The building now houses the I.M. Terrell Elementary School.
