Interview with William Coleman
QUESTION 24
INTERVIEWER:

WHEN YOU WALK IN THAT BUILDING, WHAT'S THE FIRST MEMORY?

William Coleman:

Well… well there are a lot of mixed memories uh, uh… but uh, one that usually is said is a small prayer that thank God there were nine people in this country who had the courage and the wisdom that they could end what was probably the greatest blot in this nation, namely segregation and give an opportunity to my children and my grandchildren so they could become part of this great country. OK? Can I get out of here?
