This chapter addresses the political and economic factors that thwarted Headen’s first attempts to follow his ambitions. It discusses his work as a Pullman porter in 1900-1901, and later as a student from 1901-1903 at Albion Academy, an advanced boarding school in Franklinton, NC, founded by the Presbyterian Church. Describing the faculty and student life at Albion, and Headen’s personal record there, it probes how Albion helped Headen navigate the rising violence and segregation of the Jim Crow era and keep his ambitions alive. The chapter also discusses Headen’s marriage in 1903 and his decision to become part of African American migration out of the South that same year.
