When Ramey expresses concern about poor lighting in the building one spokesman acknowledges the need for many repairs, which also include replacement doors and patching of gunshot holes, which were made by police firing into the building in September 1966, during the social uprising. Includes silent views of Ruth Williams teaching a class, of the repair issues which need fixing and of children playing.
