Can you start maybe with "the first year I was there?"
Yes, mm hm, OK. The first year that I was at Howard, I had a work-study job, uh--
The first year at Howard, ah, was in '62, ah, I had obtained a work-study position. It was in a part of the library that, that a lot of the students didn't know existed. In fact, the students that came there were the African students and graduate students from other universities like American University. It was called the Moorland Foundation, and it had everything that had ever been written essentially by Black people in the world. It had publications, um, periodicals, and so I got introduced to a lot of the literature, and it was there in that particular role that I first met Stokely, as a matter of fact. Only I didn't know who he was at the time. He came in there a lot, and, um, worked on papers.
