Harvey Milk Meets John Briggs

About This Item

Excerpt of a KPIX-TV special report from September 6th 1978 by Richard Hart in San Francisco featuring scenes from a debate between Harvey Milk and John Briggs, in which they clash over issues relating to Proposition 6 and the rights of gays and lesbians to teach in classrooms. Briggs states early on that: "I care about this country and I care about the family. And I really, sincerely, honestly and truly believe, from the bottom of my heart, that homosexuality is a real threat to the survival of this country." The segment ends with Milk challenging Briggs veracity: "You know you're lying! You know you're changing the statements around ... just like you shifted the money around in your campaigns ... You talk about morality and I question what is your real motive behind it. What is your real ambitions behind this?"
