Interview with Albert Raby

You sound calm now, what was it like walking through a neighborhood and being met with such ?


Well, this, it was scary, ah, to march through those neighborhoods and have people yelling epithets[SIC], throwing bricks, the police in, in the early stages of the marches not protecting you was a scary experience, it was an angry experience. And then have the mayor, to say that the marchers were causing the problem, rather than the failure of the administration, either in policy on issues of access to housing or in police protection was ridiculous and just reinforced what we already knew: that the mayor of the city of Chicago was giving the leadership to maintain racial segregation in Chicago.
