Southern Illinois, 1937-1938
The earliest memory (by Susan Huetteman)

It was summer, and I walked with an adult on the storefront walkway past men seated on benches. They were relaxed as they talked and stretched out their legs while leaning back on the bench. There were people walking toward us. I could see there was not going to be room enough for all of us on the walkway. I stepped down into the street to make way for the people.
"You don't get off for them. They get off for you." I remember the cautioning tone of the adult's voice.
"Why?" I asked. I was a preschool child and in my generation children had no priority. I thought I was being polite.
"Because they are coloreds." I returned to the walkway and craned my neck to see the people as they stepped onto the street.
"Don't stare at those dirty people." I felt afraid because, when things are dirty, people get sick with Polio or, even worse, have to vomit in the commode in the middle of the night. I spit. "Don't spit." But, I breathed their air into my mouth! I didn't want to be sick. I'd hold my breath the next time I walked past a colored.

* * *

As my mother and I waited for our train, I saw a water fountain and ran toward it. "Stop!" she called. "You can't drink from that fountain: it is for coloreds." I didn't understand why I couldn't drink from the fountain since it was closer, but I was a child, and in our family it was an adult world with rules for children. I looked at the sign and memorized the new rule on the sign: Coloreds.
