Step Back in Time: Aug. 27, 2013

A possible fourth is Hoyt Jackson, also a member of the SUCO social studies department.

Dr. Keiter and Mr. Weisberger have long planned to participate in the demonstration for personal reasons. Mr. Pawa and Mr. Jackson want to go just to observe the event, they said.

“For a long time, we’ve been pledging liberty and justice for all and telling the Negroes to take a back seat. My participation in this demonstration will be just a part of the long bill we owe them,” Dr. Keiter said.

“I’m going because I feel I haven’t done much for bettering the position of the Negro in the country. This provides me the opportunity to do something and I’d like to be a part of it,” Mr. Weisberger affirmed.

Mr. Pawa, a teacher of American history at SUCO, commented, “This is a rather respectable reform … and an important event in American history.” He also noted that “a lot of white people should be there” to give weight to the demonstration.

Mr. Jackson, if he decides to go, wants “to be an observer more than anything else.”

A teacher of government at SUCO, he feels “it could be a crucial demonstration and since it is relatively close to home, I should go down and at least observe it.”

Mr. Jackson also stated, “I do sympathize with the purpose of the movement.”
