Abstract:

Vivian Williams Fleming began teaching in Griffin, Georgia. She gives us detailed information about her family throughout the interview, such as family life during childhood, relatives of different races, her husband (who once worked in a cannery), her husband's teaching jobs, her marriage, going to Washington [D.C.?] with her family, and much information about her children and grandchildren. She also provides detailed information about her education, which includes Oglethorpe Elementary, Booker T. Washington High School, Spelman College, Syracuse University, and George Washington University. She also gives an anecdote about the doctor who delivered her as a baby. Her teaching career is another big topic, and she tells of deciding to be a teacher, her teaching jobs at Eagle Avenue School and Page-Jackson School, school activities, the process of desegregating schools, her students, and her teaching methods. She discusses race relations, such as burdens faced by African-Americans and women as well as the Civil Rights Movement. There are many other topics as well, and some of them include: influences in her life, thoughts on her life in general, her own social activities throughout her life, holidays, traveling, church and religion, as well as her own self-perceptions.
