Title:Oral history interview with Robert Hayes
Date:1989 May 10

Hayes discusses growing up in segregated Greensboro and the role of the church in his life and the community. He explains the board of education's procedure for selecting the first black school personnel, describes his experiences as the minority teacher, and discusses the attitudes and actions of students when integration first took place in Greensboro. He also describes a situation in the late 1950s when he was arrested in Alabama for being in the company of white military personnel.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
