Abstract

This interview was conducted by Dr. George Garrison with Booker T. Brown with a focus on the History of Emmett Scott High School. Emmett Scott was the segregated high school for African-Americans, which was named after Emmett Scott, a former aide to Booker T. Washington and President Woodrow Wilson. The school opened in 1920 and was closed in 1970 when full integration was implemented in Rock Hill, SC schools. Mr. Booker T. Brown (1930-2007) was born and raised in Rock Hill, SC and was the Director of Chorus at Emmett Scott High School. He also taught at several other schools in the area as well. In this interview Mr. Brown discusses his experiences working at Emmett Scott, his childhood growing up in Rock Hill, his service in the United States Army, and the Civil Rights movement.
