Interview with Bernard Lafayette
QUESTION 19
JUDY RICHARDSON:

What did you do during the riots in Chicago?

BERNARD LAFAYETTE:

Well, we had different roles to play and one of my roles was to go in, in with the gangs and to, ah, try to redirect them from confrontation with the policemen where we knew they would get killed. So I worked directly with them. I was small and maybe I looked like a gang member, ah, but, ah, we were able to keep them from having a confrontation directly.

JUDY RICHARDSON:

Cut.
