- In this transcript of a June 10, 1982, oral history interview conducted by Eugene Pfaff with Evander Gilmer, Gilmer discusses growing up in segregated Greensboro and his participation in civil rights activities as a student at NC A&T in 1962 and 1963. He explains the impetus for resuming demonstrations in Greensboro, the leaders involved, the role and activities of CORE, the lack of support from the adult black community, and their later transition to participation. He also describes his duties as CORE treasurer, his arrests, and his experience during the mass incarceration at the polio hospital.
