Oral history in which David W. Morehead primarily discusses his involvement with the Hayes-Taylor YMCA, including its activities and services for the Greensboro African American community. Of note are his anecdotes about the funding of the facility by white philanthropist Caesar Cone, Hayes-Taylor's relationship with the other local Ys, and Morehead's relationship with Spencer Love, which resulted in the financing of a pool at the facility. He also mentions the role of Ralph Johns, Waldo Falkener, Jimmy I. Barber, Lewis Dowdy and D.F. Bluford in race relations, including the latter's refusal to allow an integrated Y-sponsored event on the campus of NC A&T.
