Interview with Marcia Webb Lecke
QUESTION 9
INTERVIEWER:

COULD YOU TELL US ABOUT ANY INCIDENTS THAT YOU HEARD ABOUT, IN BETWEEN BLACK STUDENTS AND WHITE STUDENTS?

Marcia Webb Lecke:

The only incident that I recall hearing about at Central that year was the chili incident with Minnie Jean Brown. I didn't see the incident, um, I didn't know the people who were involved in it, personally, but I knew some of them by reputation. And, you know, I don't know if my memory is accurate, but I think that I would recall that one provoked, and it was probably a very natural response, that one had had enough. And so I don't recall thinking that Minnijean was as much out of line as what I had heard had provoked her to it.
