QUESTION 2
SAM POLLARD:

OK Mrs. Dunlap, what happened when you moved into East Garfield in 1961?

MINNIE DUNLAP:

In 1961 when I moved into East Garfield Park, I moved into a block, 3400 block on Adams, and that block was predominantly Black, but then later I wanted to move up in the 3500 block which was, the neighborhood was kept up a little bit better and I wanted to move up in that area, and the building was better also. When I went to the door and asked about moving into the apartment, they t- the landlord there told me that they didn't rent to coloreds.

SAM POLLARD:

OK Mrs. Dunlap, I'm going to ask you the same question again. Tell me about when you first moved into the East Garfield section in 1961.

MINNIE DUNLAP:

OK, in 19 and 61 when I moved into East Garfield Park neighborhood, I moved to the 3400 block on Adams. That block was predominantly Black. Later I wanted to move up in the 3500 block which was a better block, and it was predominantly White. So I went to the, to the building there to ask the landlord about moving into the building, and spoke with the caretaker that was there. He told me that they didn't rent to Blacks. As a matter of fact, he just said, "Lady, we don't rent to Whi- to, to Black, to colored people." I said, "OK," and I left.
