1.) One of the biggest takeaways from the interview was that sometimes you can relate to people but yet their stories are so unique. I also learned that no matter how much you think you have enough questions isn't always true. While I was going through the interview I had to cross out questions because they didn't fit or I had to make more while I was hearing their story. I also learned that you might think you know a person well but everyone has things that you didn't know about them. When I did my interview I didn't know that she went to Juvenile Detention Center. This shocked me because I met her through church and she didn't seem like a person that would cause trouble.
2.) The two profiles that meant the most to me were Tommie Bass, and Harold C. Cotton. The reason I choose Tommie Bass was because he wanted to help people by using herbs however he wasn't doing it for the money. Most people now go into jobs that they can get paid well instead of going into it because its their passion. In healthcare jobs you can tell the difference between people that really want to help others rather than people who are there to just get paid. I also choose Harold C. Cotton because he stood up for what he believed in and wasn't afraid if they shut down his store. To me this proves how strong he was because he didn't want to have a segregated store even though he has been at Bob's Hatters for so long.
3.) I would like to learn how people during the time of segregation stood up for what they believed in.?
- In the story of Harold C. Cotton he decided to make his store integrated. He was lucky enough that they didn't shut down the store or have a problem. However not everyone was as lucky as him so I think it would be nice to see how others overcame their struggles during that time.
I also would like to know how some people spent their hole life in one place and didn't leave when things got hard?
- In some of the stories there were people who stayed where they were comfortable and loved what they were doing. However despite some dreams were not what they expected like the opening a dinosaur park.
