Introductory Profile: About Michael Biggs

I interviewed Mr. Michael Biggs. He is my Grandpa on my mom’s side. He is a white man who was born in Oklahoma and now lives in Dallas. My Grandpa was raised to be “color blind” and inclusive of everyone. He went to the University of Texas from 1968-1972. He saw racism and social injustice during his time there. At age 68 he is still seeing racism in people that were taught that their race was superior to others. I feel that our interview went really well, I really got to listen to many interesting stories from his past and present life. It gave me an insight to why we are still dealing with these issues today.
