D'Army Bailey on Racial Stereotypes

About This Item

KPIX Eyewitness News report from August 23, 1973 featuring a brief interview with Berkeley City Councilman D'Army Bailey, who discusses political and racial stereotypes.  Bailey comments on sterotypes,  "I don't really believe in terms of politics and the needs of black people that labels are very useful." The City Councilman goes on to describe some of the challenges in gaining black representation, "It's only that minority of whites who feel confident enough about their own values and confident enough about their own position that are able to allow the existence of strong and articulate black representation to exist side by side with their own representation." Supporting text and metadata updated for the web in April 2020 by Lisa Ann Nikkel.
