It was there Paris realized he did not have to live with racial oppression. “I wasn’t automatically challenged and harassed so when I was, I made it clear I would not accept it.” Having left New Glasgow more than a half century ago has not lessened the sting of racism experienced by the young Paris. “My family was in Nova Scotia from 1755. We did not deserve the treatment we got. Nobody ever deserves that treatment. I hope it is better today, but I read the news and I wonder.” ~ Interview With New Glasgow News
