Interview with Dr. John O. Brown
QUESTION 30
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Well, Malcolm was one who made great statements some of them conservative-based about self determination, what do you think?

DR. JOHN O. BROWN:

Well, I, I certainly agree with him about self determination and this is going to be one of the things that we are going to be able to, one of the ways we are going to eliminate some of the things here in this country. Now, we always hear about what's happened in Overtown, about the race riots and things over there and how that these people are still in the ghetto and they are denied certainly privileges and everything. But I think basically you can say that today that any kid in Overtown, in the Overtown ghetto today, can escape the ghetto if he is highly motivated. There are ways to get out now. But why should we have to be more highly motivated to get, take advantage of certainly opportunities and things when other kids in this country don't have to be.
