The interview began with Mrs. Holloway’s family history. She is descendant from Dr. J. C. Whitlock, a white professor of medicine in 19th century Louisville. Her more immediate family included her grandfather, the first licensed black florist in Louisville, and mother, the first black graduate of a music school in Indiana. She discussed her family’s history under segregation and lessons she learned from them about how to respond to segregation. She also told the story of her own education. The majority of the interview covered her participation in the 1961 sit-in demonstrations in downtown Louisville, the March on Frankfort, and the March on Washington. Much of the interview also concerns specific biographical information on people Holloway knew in her youth.
