Memories of the 1969 Allen Building Takeover: Adding to the historical record

I was there all afternoon on February 13, 1969 and was involved in the confrontation with the police after the black students left the building.  I'm concerned that the oral history doesn’t accurately capture what happened that afternoon from the perspective of many Duke students who were there at the time.
