WHEN WAS HE BORN?
WHAT IS THE WORST THING HE REMEMBERS FROM HIS YOUTH?
WHAT WAS ONE IMPORTANT EVENT AT THAT TIME IN HISTORY?
WERE TIMES BETTER OR WORSE THAN TODAY?
WHERE HAS HE LIVED DURING HIS LIFETIME?
WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING THING HE REMEMBERED FROM HIS CHILDHOOD?
Basicly times are better now, though it could be about the same because there were a lot of problems then and a lot of problems now, but somethings are better now.
Important events in that time in history were the assainations of 4 people, John F. Kennedy in 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968, Malcolm X in 1965, and Robert Kennedy (The attorney General and JFK's brother) in 1968.
So, majority of the time he lived in Chicago, though in 1949 he lived in Alabama for just a short period of time.
My school Wendell Phillips Academy High School was exciting because the teachers were very good. The teachers were black and there was a white principal for a while but, it was still very good.
He remembered for when he was about 7 or 8, he saw someone after being stabbed, bleeding out and everyone just standing there. It was discrimination either just, that person bleeding and everyone staring. When he was already gone the ambulance came but that was it.
WHAT IS THE MOST AMAZING OR WONDERFUL THING THAT HAS OCCURRED DURING HIS LIFETIME SO FAR?
Actually there are two things, The right to vote and open accomidation. Open accomidation is the right to go into any hotel and/or restaurant because before if you were travelling you had to sleep on the side of the road, in a gas station, or park, etc. And also the restaurants were segregated whites in one restaurant blacks in the other.
WHO IS THE FIRST PRESIDENT HE REMEMBERS?
He remembers Dwight Eisenhower. Even though when he was when he was born it was Franklin Roosevelt. But no one can remember the
president from when they
WHAT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING HE HAS HAD TO DO?
CAN HE TELL
OUT HIS PARENTS GRANDPARENTS OR OTHERS IN PAST GENERATIONS?
WHAT THREE LESSONS WOULD HE WANT ME TO BETER MY LIFE WITH?
IS THERE ONE THING I SHOULD AVOID?
WHAT IS OR HAS BEEN HIS GREATEST FEAR?
IF ANYTHING, WOULD
HE LIKE TO HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT ABOUT HIS LIFE?
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR MY GENERATION?
Going to grammer school and doing chores. A rule in his house that before he went to bed he had to do dishes and if there was a dish in the sink he couldn't go to bed until they were done. Even though he had 2 sisters and 4 brothers who could do them.
All his generations have worked hard and were paid little. They worke in whatever they could especially because back then blacks didn't have the same rights as whites so they had to work harder to make it for little money.
He wants me to come to know Jesus Christ, which I have, get a good education, which i'm doing, and don't mate until you're married, which I was already doing.
Avoid drugs and alcohol, and people who use it. Stay clean and purified, that helps in life.
His greatest fear is dying without doing everything he should have done. So, basically leaving the world with unfinished business.
He wishes he had known what he knows
His advice is to know your purpose in life, and God's purpose.
Thanks for watching I hope you enoyed it.
