Interview with William Coleman
QUESTION 16
INTERVIEWER:

LET ME GO BACK TO THE DAY, OR THE FEW DAYS FOLLOWING THE DECISION. YOU WEREN'T HERE, BUT UH, WHAT DID YOU THINK WOULD HAPPEN? THE DECISION WAS NOT COMPLETE BUT IT WAS STRONG IN ONE DIRECTION…

William Coleman:

I, I thought this was, this was a start towards the right direction. I say that because even today in this country, we haven't completed the job. We still have a situation where blacks get only sixty-five percent of the income of whites, we have a situation where in this great city of Washington for example, uh… black people live usually in circumstances that, that are just disgraceful.
