Interview with Fred Black
QUESTION 14
LOUIS MASSIAH:

As a student leader what was going on in your head in 1967?

FRED BLACK:

Well, you know after the Hershey incident where we had the we had student disciplinary hearings and the faculty got involved in some ways, I remember feeling very clearly that the situation was unraveling rapidly and that as a result, a lot of the students lost the confidence in the student government, and you saw very dramatically, this whole movement pass to a new set of leaders, not elected leaders, but proclaimed leaders who had a lot of supporters out there among the students on the campus, and you could see that this was a turning point, because the old techniques that the elected students had been following were seen not to work, and therefore students who demanded action and fast action were willing to go with a more militant set of leaders.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Great.


LOUIS MASSIAH:

Thank you.
