StoryCorps Tampa Bay: Making Tough Decisions

Pat Spencer

Pat Spencer grew up in Montgomery, Alabama before settling in Tampa. She has been an active member of the NAACP since she was seven years old and has always been a volunteer for various organizations. 


In this installment of StoryCorps Tampa Bay, Spencer talks about her time volunteering in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s office in Montgomery. During the time Arthurine Lucy became the first African-American to desegregate the University of Alabama, Dr. King requested Spencer enroll too.


"You Don't Know My Mind" by Odetta from the album, Lookin' for a Home.
