Notes

Abstract:
For the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program's Fall 2013 Intern Class. Harvey Adams, born in Pittsburgh in 1929, was an Army cadet, police chief, civil rights activist, and lecturer. In this podcast, he recounts a few of his experiences with race and civil service throughout his career. Adams describes being subjected to segregation on Southern trains and the loss of respect his white friend showed him for accepting it, “the customs” of the South used to justify segregation even on Federally-owned military bases, and his experiences with the Pittsburgh police and the “Black Guardians,” an advocacy group for black police officers.
