Arthur Griffin:
But it was just a family. The teachers - my seventh grade language arts teacher, for example, lived about three blocks from my house in First Ward before it was completely bulldozed. So it was just like a community. I mean, you'd get in trouble at school, ultimately, you know, my dad would find out about it, because the teacher was there to say, "Arthur was cutting up."

- Arthur Griffin, Second Ward High School, Class of 1966
