Alyce Jenkins & Dorothy Scott
"You see a strong person who has always been independent become a child. It was very, very hard for her, and for me. "
Alyce Earl-Jenkins grew up in segregated Alabama and battled cancer early in life, but Alyce's toughest challenge came when her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Alyce came to the StoryCorps booth with long time friend and fellow Yellow Springs resident Dorothy Scott to discuss how the community intervened to help Alyce care for her ailing mother.
