Interview with Dillard Munford
QUESTION 5
JACKIE SHEARER:

Could you speak to what the expectations were, or what the feelings were among the White business community, about what that would mean politically?

DILLARD MUNFORD:

Well, we never knew that the change was going to come so fast. Ah, the Black population had been growing very fast. And, we were having an exit from the city of the White population. The White population was going down, the Black was coming up. But, we had no idea that they were going to be that politically attuned to the situation then. Ah, 1973 ah, they surprised the Black, the White community, I'll tell you that.
