“One of the things that I'm happy that my parents taught me was that, even though there was segregation, that nobody was better than I was. That I was just as good as anybody else, don’t let anybody put you down because of your race. And that you can succeed, you can do what you put your heart and your mind to do, and that kind of advocacy, you know, in the home. And, also exposing me to various activities to participate in which helped to give me confidence in myself, that I could do certain things.”
“That's the thing that we got to teach the young people. That's what we need to work on so that they can be proud of their neighborhoods, they can be proud of themselves. They can be proud of their heritage, and we'll just need to work on that because then they will, they too will become outstanding citizens and contributors.”
