Abstract:

Susie H. Guyton began teaching in at Bramwell School in West Virginia. She gives us detailed information about her family throughout the interview, including family life during her childhood, her husband and her children, and her family history (which includes family members of different ethnicities). She grew up in Pocahontas County (WV), and tells us about community and social activities in the area. She also gives us detailed information about her education, which includes Bluefield State College, and she tells the interviewers about a bombing at Bluefield State. Her career is a major focus, and this includes problems she faced at school--partially because she was working in the same school as her husband--race relations at the school, and changes she sees in modern students. Race relations in her life is discussed, and she recalls the desegregation of schools and discusses interracial dating. She discusses women's rights and the Women's Movement as well. There are also numerous other topics, such as: church; her self-perceptions; her beliefs on what is proper for women; class divisions among African-Americans; the achievements of her and her family; her thoughts on her life is general and how she has changed over her life; her belief that African-Americans need to be proud of their heritage and work to better their race; as well as many other subjects.
