You Don't Say: 'We've made some great strides, but we've still got a long way to go.'

May 14, 2020

In this edition of KBIA’s “You Don’t Say” series, mid-Missouri NAACP Director Mary Ratliff speaks with long-time Columbian Sehon Williams.

Williams is a 97-year-old World War II veteran who has many memories – of growing up and going to school in Columbia, going to war, and raising a family in the neighborhood at Garth and Worley where he’s lived through the decades.

Williams invited KBIA and Ms. Ratliff into his home for this You Don’t Say conversation – they sat around Williams’ kitchen table to discuss growing up, finding love, and raising families, in Columbia.

"You Don’t Say" is a special project commissioned by the city’s bicentennial Como200 task force – it’s co-produced by the Sharp End Heritage Committee and KBIA.
