Interview with Renault Robinson
QUESTION 3
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Now you were with him too in the 1977 campaign, right?

RENAULT ROBINSON:

Absolutely. During that campaign, well actually, it, it was a learning situation. We wanted to know what would it really take for a Black to run a citywide campaign. What would it take? What did you have to do? How did you develop the support? How did you handle the press? How did you get, ah, people to assist and help and participate? How did you raise money? We felt that the situation was one where we could train. We knew we couldn't win because Blacks were not prepared, but we didn't know how much they weren't prepared. That campaign taught us what we needed to know and paved the way for '82, '83.

MADISON DAVIS LACY:

All right, we'll stop down.
