Interview with C. Herbert Oliver
QUESTION 7
SAM POLLARD:

Were you struck, coming to New York from Alabama, were you struck at all by the alliance between Puerto Ricans and Blacks? Did it seem unusual to you or did it seem natural? What, and what do you think was the reason for the alliance?

C. HERBERT OLIVER:

It seemed to me to be a natural alliance. That is the alliance between the Blacks and Puerto Ricans. They were living together and, ah, at home with each other and suffering from the same, ah, inequities in the system. So it seemed to me to be just a natural alliance.
