Gayle Smaller: A Second Generation Viewpoint

Gayle Smaller provided a second-generation perspective on Homewood, having been raised in the neighborhood (see our interview with his mother, Lorraine Smaller) and then later purchasing a home and raising a family there himself. In this abridged interview, Gayle shared fond memories of being a child of Homewood and some of the incredible experiences that for him, were just home. We talked about how kickball games in the yard and the examples of black excellence of his parents and neighbors made him come back to Homewood as an adult with a purpose.
