Interview with Emma Darnell
QUESTION 12
JACKIE SHEARER:

What's your assessment of Maynard Jackson as mayor?

EMMA DARNELL:

I believe that Maynard Jackson did something at the beginning of his administration which any effective leader must do. He effectively articulated a vision of what this community should be. And that it should be a community of inclusion. Never before in the history of this city had the Black community experienced a mayor who apparently understood their history, their tradition and their goals and their aspirations. My criticism of the Jackson administration is that what he started, what he talked about, he didn't do. He did not complete.

JACKIE SHEARER:

Thank you.
