(Large area consisting of Hamilton, Polk, part of Bradley, McMinn, Monroe, Roane, Morgan, Anderson, Union, Scott and most of Campbell counties.) We will need all Dems on board.! Thanks for all your support.”

Cynthia Humes, retired teacher, spoke at the Bradley County Democratic Party’s monthly meeting
on the topic of black history.
“As a child in Bradley County, I didn’t know prejudice.
Then as I grew up, it seemed to be all around me,” Humes said.
“I recall being last to be served at the ice cream shop. Later, as a teacher,
children were removed from my classroom [because of the color of my skin].”
