Description

Nuns at St. Benedict's school were arrested for teaching black children. They were eventually released and went back to teaching the children.
"She listened to the message, hung up the phone, and gathered her sisters around to tell them what was happening."

"Undaunted by their unpleasant experience with the law the sisters of St. Joseph kept on teaching black students."
"Ironically, the women were being arrested for the very reason their religious community came to Florida to begin with."
