Ain't Scared of Your Jails
It is incredible to see how far we have come from when there was segregation. although it is hard for our generation to understand what was going through the minds of those who believed in segregation, it is pretty obvious that what those people were doing was wrong. Leo Lillard makes it clear that there was no real reason for why there was segregation, "When I was a boy, of course Nashville was clearly two divided towns... But it was clear that when I was very young that I had some problems asking my mother questions about why that was. I knew that it was, but I was always curious as to why it was." It wasnt easy to watch some of that video because I could really see what was done to the African American community. To this day im am proud to say that i have no problem with race.
