Lincoln High legacy lives on
Robert “Demp” Smith, who is a graduate and former coach of Lincoln, said today’s younger generation especially does not think much about those days before integration.
“I have 10 grandchildren now, and they don’t think this existed,” he said, gesturing at a collage of old Lincoln High pictures he had produced. “They think everything was as it is now.”
The closing of Lincoln hit the school family hard, Smith said.
