In our last conversation, Angela Paige Cook spoke with her husband, Joe Cook, about her dawning awareness of racial discrimination during the civil rights years.

To close our series, we hear the next chapter of her story, when, as a young college graduate, she left race-torn Nashville, only to find a less overt form of racism in the North.

StoryCorps Boston is produced by WBUR's George Hicks.

This program aired on May 2, 2011.
