Victor mentioned the affect his mom’s actions had on Cameron. “You could just tell that Cameron was immersed in the history and just amazed at what my mom had to go through, as well as everybody else who was Black in the South … It impacted him greatly, and I think it clicked something in his brain that this is just not acceptable.
