Interview with Harry Briggs, Sr. and Eliza Briggs
QUESTION 35
INTERVIEWER:

WHY IS IT THAT, WHY DO YOU THINK THAT THE WHITE PEOPLE OPPOSED YOU SO HARD? WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT THEY WERE AFRAID OF?

Eliza Briggs:

The only thing I could think of at that time that they're afraid of—maybe the white and the black mix too much. And I guess they feel that they can keep the black by their self, and the white by their self, that it would have been better off for them. But today, they're mixing today, I guess. A lot of them, see, today, it's no different in your color now.
