Rose Backus-Davis spots the offender from 10 yards away, but she doesn't say a word.She just points a long orange fingernail at the student as he walks down the hall past her, wearing a hat. Off it comes.No hats are allowed at Frederick Douglass High School. And Principal Davis expects students to obey the rules, learning what will be expected of them when they leave the walls of the school. So as students catch sight of her, they pull their hats off. It's that or buy them back from her.It is an example of how far Douglass has come in the past 2 1/2 years, since Davis took over a school where students commonly ran the halls and ignored authority.

His mother, Martha Eulalia Reed, was a Morgan State College graduate who taught school. His father, Cabell Calloway, graduated from Lincoln University in Pennsylvania and worked as a lawyer.Young Cab Calloway even had his own car in high school -- a used 1923 Oldsmobile he'd bought with $275 he'd earned working -- a rarity in that era, particularly for a black man."
