In February of 2001, the Spokesman-Review produced a month long series of articles on black history titled "Through Spokane's Eyes Moments in Black History," focusing in particular on the civil rights movement of the 1960s. As part of that series, Rebecca Nappi conducted a series of interviews with individuals with ties to both the Civil Rights movement and to Spokane. Interviewees incluede Jerrelene Williamson, Clarence Greeman, Sam Minnix, Verda Lofton, Flip Schulke, Alvin Pitmon, and Nancy Nelson. They discuss race relations and the Civil Rights movement in Spokane, school integration in Arkansas, Martin Luther King, Jr., and their involvement in the movement elsewhere.
