Interview with Harry Briggs, Sr. and Eliza Briggs
QUESTION 28
INTERVIEWER:

MRS. BRIGGS, WHAT WERE THE BLACK SCHOOLS AND THE WHITE SCHOOLS LIKE IN SUMMERTON IN YOUR OWN WORDS?

Eliza Briggs:

I had never been into the white, but the black schools were overcrowded, and they didn't have, give enough of the subjects to the children. Now the white, it wasn't too crowded, not to me, and it was a large school, enough, I believe they, for them to have room enough to do just what they wanted to do.
