Interview with Ethel Mae Matthews
QUESTION 27
JACKIE SHEARER:

So, we're back in Resurrection City, you said something before about how you felt that Resurrection City opened up people's eyes. Could you say that again?

ETHEL MAE MATTHEWS:

Well, I felt that, ah, about Resurrection City being there, it opened up a lot of people's eyes there. At that time, you know, they didn't feel, they didn't feel the way they did before they came to Resurrection City. But after they came to Resurrection City, and they was taught about racism, discrimination, violent, and all of that and homeless peoples and poor peoples and how they being, you know, being mistreated, police brutality and all of that. It opened up a lot of people's eyes and things were just, you know, thinking differently and they went to feeling different toward each other.
