Weinberg describes growing up taking for granted "the way things were" and only gradually becoming more aware of racial segregation as a college student and immediately thereafter in various service oriented jobs. She tells of the opportunities she had to learn from some strong black leaders in Virginia. She recalls her father, Governor Combs' pride in having issued an executive order to eliminate segregation in Kentucky. She concludes that only recently has she begun to see signs of real change.
