18. I didn't know about them trying to start a party. I was a kid. Never heard about it.

I remember about that time wondering about whites having all the good jobs, and segregation. I remember, as a child, wondering how blacks felt about that. I remember thinking that whites having the good jobs is not right. Then I concluded that blacks must be okay with it, or they'd say something. (the innocent thinking of a child)

I still remember, all these years later, pondering that.

I was in the deep south. My mother didn't watch the news, so even if protests were shown on tv, I wouldn't have seen that. There certainly were no local protests.
