- This is a four-page, typed set of notes by William Chafe on a July 19, 1972, interview with Dr. George and Anna Simkin. Shorthand is used throughout, including "GB" for "Greensboro." Chafe notes that the Simkins discussed their childhoods and education. Anna shared her support of school desegregation, and George recalled protesting the policy of segregation at Gillespie Park Golf Course. They both discussed Greensboro's failure to comply with Brown v. Board of Education, and Anna talked about forming a committee to aid black families in enrolling their children at all-white schools. They discussed the generational divide in the black community and communication between black and whites in Greensboro. These interview notes form part of Duke history professor William Chafe's research culminating in his 1980 book Civilities and Civil Rights.
