AACHM Oral History: Nelson Freeman

Sat, 04/15/2017 - 1:29pm

Please take a moment to take our Living Oral History Survey and let us know what you learned.

Nelson Freeman was born in 1939 and grew up in Ypsilanti. He remembers being one of the few black children at his elementary school and the transition to high school with white friends. He also recalls how his father made sure local African American children had a night of their own at the local rollerskating rink, where he became one of the best skaters, and other social and business activities in town. Mr. Freeman spent time in the Navy and had a long career as a dental technician.
