QUESTION 2
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

Can you tell me about, there was an existing Civil Rights Movement in Chicago: was Daley Responsive to the Black population in Chicago?

ED MARCINIAK:

Well, the Civil Rights Movement was an interracial movement. The mayor was responsive to the nine or ten or eleven Black--I think there were nine Black aldermen at the time. There were states, there were state representatives, state senators, state congressmen and he saw himself as a political leader responding to the political leadership which the Black community in Chicago had elected. In other words, he saw, he saw that Civil Rights Movement as an auxiliary to the basic system for achieving political objective.
