''They don't accept colored people on the streetcars.''
When Maya was 15 she decided to get a job. Young Maya wanted to be a Conductorette. She admired the dark-blue uniform and money changer on their belt. When she went to apply for the job, the clerk wouldn't let her see the manager. Will she become a Condcutorette? Or will being colored ruin her dream?

This is my project for English class. We read the story "Occupation: Conductorette" By: Maya Angelo.
Then we had to create a poster (Glog) that encouraged other people to read this story.
