Later I did, yes. Later, I did.
Do you remember which case, what kind of case it was?
No, but it was a segregation case.
Did it involve schools or public places?
It was the Brown case.
It was the Brown case?
Yes. I went first to Richmond and then to the Supreme Court.
Did you go just once or did you go several times?
We went on two occasions. It wasn't very long.
When you say “we”, who did you go with?
My husband. Yes.
Do you recall that you both had wanted to go, or?
Yes. Well, he was involved.
He was involved?
-- with the lawyers. He was working with the lawyers, and
they were in Richmond at the time, and he was responsible for calling
me from Atlantic City, New Jersey, to come to testify in this case.
And that was my first participation in it.
