Interview with Ernest Green
QUESTION 26
INTERVIEWER:

DID YOU EVER THINK THEN THAT YOU WERE GOING TO BE WORKING FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AT SOME POINT?

Ernest Green:

No, didn't think that nor being an Assistant Secretary. Uh, I did think though that uh, whatever that I was going to do uh, that going to Central High School was not gonna to be the apex of my life. I mean I, I, if, if one, and I think this was true of all of us who went to school there that we didn't regard Central High School as the key point in our lives or in our career that we only saw it as a, as a stepping stone. So I expected—my expectations were to continue to play some sort of role uh, in the movement that is, and trying to make life—improve life for black people in this country. And that Central was only a beginning uh, to be involved in that.
