Interview with Rachel Nelson West
QUESTION 19
INTERVIEWER:

I'M GOING TO INTERRUPT YOU BECAUSE I WANT YOU TO TELL ME [ BEFORE THE MOVEMENT. ]

West:

Oh, before, ok. Before the movement, being a kid in Selma was nice, it was fun, but like I said we couldn't go into place, puppet places. If I needed to go to the dentist, I could not go, my parents couldn't take me. If I needed to go to a doctor, my parents couldn't take me. If we went, we had to go to the back door. We couldn't go to the schools of our choice. Children in Selma well, its just like it was for our parents, we wasn't free, but it was good to live here in Selma.
