Interview with Linda Brown Smith
QUESTION 11
INTERVIEWER:

AGAIN, IF YOU CAN DESCRIBE FOR US YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT THE BROWN CASE, THE IMPACT OF IT, AND YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT THE IMPACT IT HAD ON THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT IN THE UNITED STATES.

Linda Brown Smith:

I feel that after thirty years, looking back on Brown v. The Board of Education, it has made an impact in all facets of life for minorities throughout the land. I really think of it in terms of what it has done for our young people, in taking away that feeling of second class citizenship. I think it has made the dreams, hopes and aspirations of our young people greater, today.
