Kathy Bond was born in Harford County in 1959 and has lived in Harford her entire life. During the 1960’s she was among the first black children to enter into a newly desegregated Dublin elementary school. Kathy tells about popular events that took place in the 60’s such as civil rights and Vietnam and how she viewed them as a child and also how she views them now in retrospect. This interview also talks about the concept of beauty in the society she grew up in and how minorities like herself dealt with the inability to fit the stigma. She discusses her family, how she was raised and how her parents differed from others. Kathy gives an interesting comparison to the interview done by her mother Frances Bond which gives viewers a child’s perspective.
