Interview with Les Campbell

OK, once again, could you describe, ah, your meeting, ah, the meeting with the African-American teachers with Rhody McCoy in '67?


Well, Rhody McCoy had been appointed the unit administrator of the Ocean Hill-Brownsville experimental school project in the summer of 1967, and myself and Albert Vann, representing the African-American Teachers Association, we wanted to extend to Mr. McCoy, ah, the fact that our organization was supportive of the efforts of the Ocean Hill-Brownsville project and that we were prepared to assist him in whatever way possible to make sure that that project was a success. And that was the essence of our meeting in 1967.
