Gerard Tate, Clip 4: From Ridgewood to Georgia: Segregation
Description: In this clip from an oral history interview with Gerard Tate, he discusses his surprise at the racial segregation he saw upon entering Georgia as part of the army in the 1960s. He tells a story about being surrounded by white people when he went to see a production of "The Princess and the Pea." All of the African Americans were seated at the far end of the balcony in the theater. He even comments that the only integrated place was the bus going to Fort Benning, Georgia.
