Interview with Dr. Kenneth Clark
QUESTION 4
INTERVIEWER:

NOW, WHEN YOU GOT INVOLVED WITH CLARENDON COUNTY, WHEN THEY ASKED YOU TO GET INVOLVED, DID YOU SEE IT AS ANY DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER TESTING SITUATION?

Dr. Kenneth Clark:

Did we? Well. we got involved with the Clarendon County case, we got involved because the lawyers initiated the communication with us. We could not talk about the results of our research in terms of the litigation, because the litigation came, as I said earlier, after we did the study, and the dolls test and the other techniques that we used to study the development of the sense of self in these children, was done purely in terms of attempting to understand the psychological process—how do people develop from childhood a sense of their own person?
