Interview with James Armstrong
QUESTION 8
INTERVIEWER:

OK. WHAT WAS WHAT WAS BIRMINGHAM LIKE IN FIFTY-SIX?

James Armstrong:

It was—it was prejudiced and segregation and kind of backwards, and well, in certain places still is, but back in fifty-six it was worse though. And there was signs where a black couldn't go and, and there were signs all the way. Wherever you went there were signs in your face. Or what color you were, like you didn't know what color you were. So these are things that we fought hard to destroy.
