Interview Summary

Hines (House 1976-1986, 43rd district; Democrat) describes his experiences growing up in an African-American neighborhood in Louisville during segregation, his college and military experiences, his entry into politics via the Louisville Board of Education and local politics, and some of the issues the city faced with integration, county/city school merger, and busing. He discusses the need for black representation in his district, legislation for better integration, welfare, being a part of the black caucus, his work in the National Black Caucus of State Legislators, the camaraderie that existed among legislators, and regional block voting in the legislature.
