NOVELIST ZORA NEALE HURSTON INTERVIEWS MR. WILLIAM CLARK
In the 1930's Mr.William Clark was interviewed by Novelist Zora Neale Hurston. Hurston was among those who chronicled The Rise and Fall of The Town of Goldsboro. She considered him as one of Goldsboro's Founding Father's for the Depression Era in her Federal Writer's Project. She further writes, this formal town is now known as West Sanford and is a part of the City of Sanford. It was once incorporated as the Negro town of Goldsboro on December 1, 1891 and ended on April 6, 1911. She also wrote Sanford, looked with displeasure on the new town not because it was incorporated by colored people but because it would block the westward expansion of Sanford. The bigger city failed to talk with Goldsboro residents to drop their Charter.
