Interview with Vanessa Venable
QUESTION 11
INTERVIEWER:

SO YOU THINK THAT MAYBE IN SOME WAY, BECAUSE OF ALL THE HARDSHIPS YOU HAD TO SUFFER, THE NAACP MISLED YOU TO ENCOURAGE YOU NOT TO TAKE THAT OFFER?

Vanessa Venable:

No, we have stuck with the NAACP through all of that, and we feel that their advice was sound. And we feel that we did the right thing to hold to our desires for a public school system that was purely public.
