Former Delaware Secretary of Labor Stafford reflects on the legacy of his father - Dover Post

Monday, March 13, 2017

There, his hard work and reputation led to jobs of increasing responsibility, culminating as a supervising foreman before his retirement in 1982.Along the way, Stafford married Beatrice Bragg. Their first home, four acres of land and a leaky house, was purchased for $175. Beatrice brought in additional income as a domestic worker, but continued her education while raising their children. She eventually earned a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and worked as a teacher for more than 30 years.Stafford coped with the restrictions of being a black man in the Deep South over much of his lifetime. Even fun family outings were dampened by the ever-present Jim Crow, forcing him to use the back door of the local Dairy Queen because the staff would not serve a black man in the front of the store.“He’d be so dejected when he came back,” Harold recalled. “He was embarrassed but he’d always say there’s a brighter day ahead.”Stafford, however, didn’t become involved in the civil rights movement of the 60s.“I’m not saying he never felt bitter or that he wasn’t happy about the condition under which he and other blacks lived at the time,” Harold said. “His concern was to make the best of a bad situation.”Stafford always encouraged his children to better themselves through education.“It was always very strongly enforced in the family that education was the key to equal opportunity in America,” Harold said. “And we always were told you can’t expect to be given anything in this world, you have to go out and make it happen.”Harold said it was important that he write the book about his father.“First off, I wanted the Stafford family to know about him,” he said. “I learned a lot of things that they didn’t know, I felt an obligation to tell the story.“Also, I see my dad as an unsung, unseen hero,” Harold added. “I wanted to chronicle his life so that our family, our friends and our community and maybe the world would know what a great man he was, and what you could accomplish, even with a sixth-grade education.”Harold’s book is subtitled “An American Dream Fulfilled.”“My dad not only had this dream about his own life and what he wanted to accomplish, but he did it against some very big odds,” Harold said. “He wanted to make sure his family had a quality of life that was better than his had been.”And although some may think the nickname “Water boy” to be derogatory, his father never considered that, Harold said.“He wore that name proudly,” he said. “He was proud he had that job with the railroad, it was a way out of poverty.”Harold highly recommends others taking the time to sit down with their elders and learn from them.“After having written this book about my dad and his experiences, when I see older people I have such a renewed appreciation for them,” he said. “You never can tell what they’ve done, or what their lives have been like.”A signed copy of Harold’s book, “Ellis ‘Water Boy’ Stafford: An American Dream Fulfilled,” is available directly from him by calling 697-0622; unsigned copies may be ordered through amazon.com. The cost is $12.95.
