Interview with Harry Briggs, Jr.
QUESTION 8
INTERVIEWER:

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR FATHER. WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM AFTER HE SIGNED A PETITION TO SUE THE SCHOOLS?

Harry Briggs, Jr.:

Well, they told him to take his name off the petition and he didn't. So he had this job at the gas station for so many years, and they told him if he don't take his name off the petition, they would fire him. So he didn't, so they fired him. So he tried farming a few years. There wasn't enough money coming in to support the family, so he left and he went to Florida. So he worked in Florida and every week or so sent mother some money to take care of the kids. Then when he get time off, he come up and see us and then go back to Florida.
