Updated commentary: Note: On August 21, Mrs. Williams and I gave an interview for a documentary about the Wilmington 10, Wilmington in the 1960s and 70s. We talked about how she was chosen from the all-black school where she was teaching (first Gregory, then Peabody) to be one of just a few teachers sent to an all-white school, Bradley Creek. We talked about how she was treated by her peers, how the white parents responded, the hardship of the black children sent to Bradley Creek and the reactions of my classmates and parents. We were a small laboratory testing the love of our religious teachings against a backdrop of racism in the world in which we lived. We are forever changed by the experience and our relationship.
