Transcription

Schools like UNC and the people like Dr. Ferris and others, and like yourself, who are interested in doing this kind of work and making it happen. Not just for us now, but for future generations.

So, we need to be able to contact, even when the schools may not have a department like UNC. But if they are interested, even the schools could learn something from universities like UNC, that they can create something so that you can have that opportunity for the students to go into the communities and learn. And then, the communities can learn from the students. I think that makes for a better overall community when people are educated, and they're able to learn about their past and their present and so forth. And look at where they've come from, especially as African-Americans, at how our people were able to survive and thrive throughout these difficult periods of our time. That we can come to appreciate more of who we are, and those people who are in a position who can help can appreciate the opportunity to help make life better for the people that they are providing this service for. So, it's a win-win situation. It's a great learning opportunity. You're not just reading a book about what somebody else did, but you’re helping to write the pages of that book yourself.
