Interview with Minnie Dunlap

OK Mrs. Dunlap, tell me about when you first moved to East Garfield Park, where you lived and then where you decided you wanted to try to move to.


OK, when I moved to East Garfield Park in 1961, I moved in the 3400 block in, on Adams, and that's like a predominantly Black neighborhood, block. Then I wanted to move into the 3500 block which was a better block, th- the block of people, the block was better. So I went up there and spoke to the landlord, the, ah, caretaker that was taking care of the building, about moving into an apartment up there, and he told me that we don't rent to coloreds.
