Living with Jim Crow series: Interview with my mom, part 1
You got to do this and you to do this; it was just the way we grew up. I just accepted the fact that we sat at the back of the bus, stand at the back of the line; white folks were first, and we were second. That's just the way it was." For those who grew up during the Jim Crow years, segregation and discrimination was an ingrained way of life. However, this way of life wasn't centuries ago. This way of life occurred after the civil war in the 1860s through the late 1960s. And today, there are many African Americans living who can share stories of their lives and experiences during the toughest and hardest chapters of American History. Today, on "IN THE KNOW with Tony Reeves", I'm starting my 'Living Black History' series with 30 year teacher, Jim Crow Survivor, Glenda Reeves (my mother), who grew up in the South during Jim Crow and Integration.
