Interview with Clory Bryan

Talk about what happened when you spoke out at a local meeting.


Ah well there was, it was during the time that I was living in Chicago public housing. And ah there was some, people had been asked to move and they didn't want to move or couldn't move or whatever. They asked me if I would come to this rally that night and--and help them to organize. An--ah to protest that move, and I did. On Tuesday, I had a notice in the mail to come down to the Chicago Housing Authority Office. And I was informed when I arrived there that my rent was going from $61 dollars up to $178 dollars. And I'm sure it was because of the statements that I had made at the meeting several nights before.
