Interview with C. Herbert Oliver
QUESTION 15
SAM POLLARD:

And how did it happen that night? I mean was there a vote? I mean, how, how, how did it proceed?

C. HERBERT OLIVER:

There was a vote. There was discussion, there was disagreement. There was a vote. ** There was a community group that came in and insisted that the Board take action. And, ah, without knuckling under to them, the Board felt that they should take action and they did take action and transferred the teachers and supervisory personnel to the Central Board of Education.
