- In this transcript of an oral history interview conducted circa 1980 by Eugene Pfaff with Hobart Jarrett, Jarrett primarily describes the efforts to desegregate the Woolworth's lunch counter and Meyer's Tea Room in Greensboro in the early 1960s. He describes his personal background, his role as chairman of the Greensboro Citizens Asssociation and the group's activities, and details of negotiations with white merchants such as Mose Kiser of Guilford Dairy and Clarence Harris of Woolworth's. Other major topics include the role of specific members of the black community, especially Dr. W.L.T. Miller, George Simkins, Vance Chavis, and various ministers, as well as the role of women at Bennett College and Women's College (now UNCG).
