“I know one time when I was livin* in Louisiana, we had a teacher named
Arvin Nichols* He taught there seventeen years and one time he passed some
white ladies and tipped his hat and went on and fore sundown they had him
arrested* Some of the white men who knew him went to court and said what had
he done, and they cleared him right away* That was in the ’80’s in Marion,
Louisiana, in Union Parish”
