Interview with Linda Brown Smith
QUESTION 6
INTERVIEWER:

CAN YOU DESCRIBE MORE FULLY, IN A WORD PICTURE, IF YOU WILL, YOUR FATHER AS A MAN, AS YOU REMEMBER HIM DURING THOSE TIMES, AND WHY HE WAS SO UPSET WITH UH, YOUR HAVING TO TAKE THE WALK THAT YOU TOOK.

Linda Brown Smith:

I remember my father as being a very strong man, a very family-oriented man, and this led him to become a part of the NAACP here in Topeka and become a part of the suit filed in behalf of his child, because he believed that a child having to go so far to receive a quality education was wrong, just because of the color of skin, and he was very, very determined that something was going to be done about this.
