David Segura reflects on his childhood and adulthood in Austin from the late 1940s onward; he recounts his experience going from a largely Hispanic community to a predominately white community as a child, and how teachers and administrators discriminated against him and his fellow Hispanic peers. He also discusses the changes he has seen in Austin's schools as a teacher and principal, and changes in Austin's neighborhoods and demographics.

This interview is part of an oral history project, Conversations to Create Unity, conducted by the Susanna Dickinson Museum and funded by Baylor University's Institute of Oral History. The project features fifteen oral histories from a diverse group of lifelong Austinites. Their interviews communicate race relations as a shared human experience and present a productive dialog about race in Austin, Texas.
