Interview with Phyllis Ellison
QUESTION 18
JACKIE SHEARER:

In the midst of all this, did it ever happen that White kids and Black kids got along?

PHYLLIS ELLISON:

Not from '74 to '77. The White kids were afraid of, ah, being friends with the Black, um, students because they would be ostracized. They would be casted out. They weren't allowed to have Black friends or they would be beat up.
