Clip 3óAbout the Community

JA: So how did you--do you remember how the community looked at Miss Baldwin? Did they--was she known outside of the Seventh Day Adventist Community?

EW: Of course, thatís what it was, a community. Thatís what Miss Baldwin said. She looked around and there was nothing for the blacks in the community. And so she let you know you didnít have to be--half of these kids are not Seventh Day Adventist. These kids are--she, she didnít believe that you had to belong to the church. Only thing, she wanted you to get Jesus first. And become decent citizens, thatís what she would say. Be--contribute to your community. And thatís how she was able to do it.
Half of these children wouldnít, didnít go to the church. It was community time. She was a community. And you could talk now and all you have to say is, ďMiss Baldwin,Ē and the whole community know her.
