Interview with Orval Faubus
QUESTION 69
INTERVIEWER:

DID YOU, WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT BLACK AND WHITE?

Orval Faubus:

Well, I was reared in a region somewhat like New England. Uh, we had a feeling that uh black people had never really had uh, as fair a shake as some of the rest of us, although I was raised in a, a poverty stricken region, uh there were many blacks who had access to fine high schools, when I didn't have. You know, it's pretty hard, it's like in a war, how are you going to obtain equality of sacrifice, uh between the troops, the rear echelon troops, and the front line troops.
