Interview with Fred Black

What was that line that sort of separated you form Adrian and Tony? In terms of the fact that they went into the administration building and you didn't?


We were all operating in terms of principle, and those people who made the decision to participate in the organizations and those of us who didn't, had to operate in terms of our own principles. I felt very certain and confident about the decision I made and that being the right decision, the taking over the administration or the president's office was not the solution to the problem. I'm not so sure people who were involved were as certain that they were doing the right thing. But they were risk-takers. And I think as a result, the university has benefited from its experience in the 60s, late 60s. But you don't want that benefit.
