Interview with Herb Boyd
QUESTION 22
SAM POLLARD:

I need you to say "the feeling".

HERB BOYD:

The feeling in the street at that time with no police on the presence. The feeling in the streets at that time was a kind of sense of euphoria you know. A sense of freedom and rebellion. And the kind of excitement that was like touching everybody. Everybody felt like unified that you know the revolution was right around the corner. Because we had been talking about those things in the community anyway. So everybody felt that this was the catalyst. This was the charge. This was the igniter. This is what we've been waiting for. And so it was like a push. A march. People were just gathering all over the place. I got caught up in the pitch of things. At the full excitement. It was exhilarating.

SAM POLLARD:

Great.
