PENDLETON — Jeremiah Dew didn’t know anything about Wildred J. Walker Sr. when he walked into the Greenville resident’s home in 2008.

It was happenstance. Dew was asked to play the role of camera man for a Leadership Greenville class project and simply showed up to do the job. He had no idea a seed would be planted that would change his life.

In Walker’s hour-long interview he told many stories, one of which was about the racism he encountered at the highway department in Greenville in the 1940s.
