Pedigo describes meeting his wife. Both Pedigo and his wife, Jennie, worked at American Viscose during the 1930s; he did not become personally acquainted with her, however, until mid-decade when she gave a speech in support of inviting African American workers to union meetings. Following her speech, Pedigo began to work more closely with her and describes how they were both among the more radical members of the union and that as a result they became closer to one another. Throughout the interview he often describes how they worked together within the labor movement. Eventually, they were married in 1942.
