Interviewer: (inaudible) efforts to keep people not knowledgably about certain aspects of society and history? Calyen: Well, there are some things that one has to do for themselves and reading is one of those things. It’s not a bad thing to not know how to read. It’s a bad thing to know how to read and don’t read. When a person has knowledge right at their fingertips and they don’t try to get that knowledge or find out something about yourself. Interviewer: Any last words? Calyen: I would appreciate it if our school systems could teach our kids not only about the history of the United States but about a history of other races. Not only black, but other cultures. Know something about the all the cultures and I think we’d have less problems in our society then Interviewer: Thank you. Thank you so much. Calyen: My pleasure.
