Jefferson Elementary School, Venable Elementary School, Lane High School

Well, you know, I was a kid.  Very much a kid.  So it’s hard to, I remember I just wanted to go to school.  I knew what King was doing.  And Martin King wanted to integrate our society.  I understood that at that age.  So I’d felt that someone had to do it.  If I’m only a half a block from the school I would have needed to integrate, I was prime subject. I was the guy who should be doing it.  And I was very much in support of what he was doing, even at that age.
