Abstract:

This paper argues that in an era when blacks had little access to government resources, educational and job training opportunities, the Tipton Home was uniquely positioned to have a positive effect on Missouri’s most vulnerable African American girls. An analysis of clients’ case files demonstrate that an all-black staff at this institution promoted moral behavior, respectability, and self-sufficiency as part of the reform program. However, these reformers also stressed the need for black girls to empower themselves with a skill or to continue their education before taking their “place in the world.” By and large, the work of rehabilitating African American female delinquents at the Tipton Home revolved around teaching the girls, among other things, moral values, job skills and poise. Thus, the institutional experience of the girls demonstrates that the institution existed, not just for the sole purpose to be punitive, but to also serve the purpose of preparing the girls for what one superintendent of the institution called, “useful citizenship.”
