Interview with Ed Vaughn
QUESTION 16
SAM POLLARD:

OK, give me a sense of what the community was feeling like, what they were, how they were acting after the rebellion had died down.

ED VAUGHN:

After the rebellion was over, there was a strong sense of camaraderie in the community, a strong sense of brotherhood and sisterhood. We saw more and more sisters began to wear natural hair-dos, more and more brothers began to wear their hair in, in the new natural styles, more and more people began to wear dashikis, we saw a very strong sense of, of, of camaraderie in the community. That was all very good for us, and we, we enjoyed that feeling, we felt that we had accomplished something, that the riots had paid off, that we finally had gotten the White community to listen to the gripes and to listen to some of the concerns that we were, had been expressing for many years.

SAM POLLARD:

OK, let's cut.
