|Figure 10: Alex Gregg
The remarkable thing is that through all those years of enslavement and oppression, the African Americans led lives of exemplary dignity. This picture of Alex Gregg speaks volumes. After all those years of oppression, he still held his head in this proud way and his face still radiated wisdom and integrity. (Photo ca. 1930s)
