George Logan describes segregated life in Stanford, which was not as rigid as other places, and tells of hitch-hiking home from Lexington rather than go to the window specified for blacks to buy a bus ticket. He tells how UK white students refused to sit with him in history class until Dr. Clark had a talk with them. Logan was one of the 3 first African Americans enrolled in Graduate School at UK in 1951. After time in the Air Force, he began teaching at Dunbar High School and later at Henry Clay High School. He tells how he got involved with improving certification and training for Driver Education and going to work for the Kentucky State Department of Education where he worked for 20 years.
