Acuna-Gurrola, Moises Wall, James Goodlow, Wendy


Windy Goodloe is a staff member at the museum of the Seminole Indian Scout Cemetery Association. Goodloe grew up in Brackettville, spending most of her early life with her grandparents. She recalled being usually one of very few African American students in the local schools, and in particular her relationship with Mexican American students. Goodloe attended Spellman College in Atlanta, but did not complete her degree; after several years in Atlanta, she returned to Brackettville to care for her grandparents. She talked at length about issues of identity, the history of Black Seminoles in Brackettville, and the current status of Fort Clark Springs as a gated community, among other topics.5 video recordings (57 min., 10 sec.) : sd., col. ; digital
