QUESTION 1
LOUIS MASSIAH:

What was the situation for Black teachers, particularly Black males in the New York City School Board in '67, particularly a Black teacher that had an aspiration for a job in the administration of the schools?

RHODY McCOY:

The history in that city, I think there were three Principals.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Could you start again, the history in New York City.

RHODY McCOY:

The history in New York City School System, there were three appointed Principals, two were women and one was male. Ah, and he was in elementary school, the elementary school appointee. So for many, many years there were no Black Principals and only one Black male, many years. Ah, they could not pass the civil service examination.
