Inscription.  J. Frankie Pierce was born during or shortly after the Civil War. In 1921, she founded the Tennessee Vocational School for Colored Girls and served as its first superintendent until 1939. The founding of this school was aided by the Negro Women's Reconstruction Service League and the City Federation of Colored Women's Clubs that she organized. Before the modern civil rights movement, Pierce led her club members in a march on city hall in protest of the city's segregated public facilities. J. Frankie Pierce died on March 28, 1954.
