Description

Mrs. Haygood is a black, middle-aged wife and mother who came to Savannah when segregation was at its height. "I remember the time when the boycott was on Broughton Street we would have sit-ins there and a lot of my people was hurt. A lot of police here were brutal to them. And I didn't like the idea of them putting gas and water hoses on our people."
