Title:Oral history interview with Arthur Shores, July 17, 1974
Date:1974 July 17
Description:

Birmingham politician Arthur Shores offers his thoughts on the intersection of race and politics in his home city. Shores sees significant progress in Birmingham since the violence of the 1960s, in part because of that violence, and sees Birmingham citizens increasingly voting based on their interests rather than their race. He also shares his opinion of George Wallace, whom he sees as a political opportunist.
