        Joe Dickson

        In this interview, Joe Dickson recalls his days as a student at Miles College in the late 1950s and early 1960s. He describes the relationship between student activists and two successive college presidents. The first, Dr. William Augustus Bell, discouraged student involvement in the early years of the Civil Rights movement. He feared student activism would trigger white resistance and adversely affect fundraising. The second, Dr. Lucius Pitts, supported student activism and participated in negotiations between white businessmen and black students.
