Well, I grew up in Charlottesville.  I grew up over on West Street, which is, I guess from here, is about three blocks from here.  Actually, my daughter lives in the house I was raised in, raised up in.  And it was an integrated neighborhood.  We had whites and Black on that street.  Actually, the whole street, from the upper section close to 10th Street, you had Bowles Market, you had another store which was owned by a white family on the corner.  Then, you came down to my section, which was the middle section.  You had Taylor’s Store, which was there for a long time.  And then on the other end was completely Black.  But my section, we had white families in that area right there.
