Handwritten note on the image indicate that this is the "Burdine Colored School" in Jenkins, KY. Jenkins was created in 1911 by the Consolidation Coal Company, who owned the land and the majority of public buildings and private residences were built under their direction. Given the history of Jenkins, almost all the students pictured were the children of Consolidation coal miners. 1921 April 13.
