Interview with Leola Montgomery
QUESTION 8
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT WAS THE BLACK SCHOOL LIKE?

Leola Montgomery:

The black school was a very good school. We don't have any uh qualms about our schools. They were very good schools, we had quality teachers, the children did get quality educations if they did have the second-hand books, so to speak, because some of the books that they got were handed down from the white schools. But they had quality education. The teachers were very much concerned about the students, their education, and seeing that they got a quality education. So we had very, very good black schools. And when the children came out, they were well learned. They were ready to be integrated into the junior high school with the white children.
