When Paula was a little girls back in the 60s, her parents made a very brave decision for their family.  They had grown up in the deep south and knew how hard it was to be black in those days.  There were laws that told Blacks where they could sit, where they could eat, where they could live.  But Paula's parents wanted to help change that so they moved to Atlanta to join the Civil Rights Movement.  It wasn't easy and Paula saw the dark side of people.
