Interview with Ed Gardner
QUESTION 13
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

I say we, the Black community on one, Jane Byrne took Blacks off the School Board, off CHA board. Ah, we said, well gosh, how can we stop this? We must be able to do something and, and the only thing we knew to do was what we had the capability of doing, that is, how to market and sell a product. We knew how to market and sell a candidate for mayor. That's what we tried to do.

MADISON DAVIS LACY:
