Interview with Maggie Thomas
QUESTION 7
INTERVIEWER:

Now, remember you told me about the dedication ceremony for the day care center? Where you thanked the mayor? Could you tell me what you remember about what you said in that speech?

MAGGIE THOMAS:

Well, it was more or less thanking him, you know.

INTERVIEWER:

I'm sorry. Could you begin by saying, "When we dedicated the day care center, I thanked the mayor."

MAGGIE THOMAS:

Okay. When we dedicated the daycare center I presented him a plaque from the Tenants' Association. And, um, in that speech I was just more or less thanking him, you know, for the weekend and the patience that he had with us out there at Bankhead, the weekend he spent there at my house. At my apartment. So it was more or less, I, it was a thank you token. That's what the plaque was.
