Interview with Kenneth Clark

So you could answer to Sam just so people understand why you were so concerned about police not coming on campus, what did you envision would happen if they came on campus?


I felt strongly that we should do everything within our power to keep police from coming into this conflict or coming on campus because I had images of police using their nightsticks and their bludgeons and worse really.** Now this may have been just my imagination but this was my imagination. I just did not want to be on a board or to be associated with the university in which students were being bludgeoned. That's what I was saying to my colleagues on the board. And this was the main point that I was communicating to the students and the student leaders.
