What about her?
Do you know her or do you know of her?
No, I don't know her nor do I have any desire to know her
now. No. You see how open-minded I am. No.
Is there anything else you'd like to say about the black
No, except that we've got to do something about it, but
we probably won't.
I have sort of a specific question, going back a while. I
don't believe that I asked you this during your earlier
interviews. I want to go way back to when Roy Wilkins was
appointed Executive Secretary of the NAACP. I have heard-- I've
never read anything authoritative on this-- that their chief
lobbyist in Washington, Clarence Mitchell, had wanted, perhaps
even had expected that. Do you know whether there's any truth to
that or not?
No, I don't know specifically, but I would expect that he
being human, he had human aspirations and ambitions that would
have included that.
