Interview with Rosemary Porter
QUESTION 20
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

Was there any sense that they were being kept away from the rest of the city, or being, was that an issue for residents in the city of Chicago?

ROSEMARY PORTER:

The Blacks?

SHEILA C. BERNARD:

No. That the police were being drawn away.

ROSEMARY PORTER:

Well, I don't really, well, I imagine they were. You know, where you going to get all these police to, ah, protect these marchers and demonstrators or, I mean, they have to be drawn from other, from duties around the city.

SHEILA C. BERNARD:

Uh huh.

ROSEMARY PORTER:

But if they, if they feel that those marchers, ah, needed protection, I mean, hey, you know, they should have, they should have provided them with the protection.
