Re: “Norma Lee Browning vs. the hillbillies

Patricia Espy-Branham, I am a college student writing a paper on the Rainbow Coalition of the late 1960s that came out of Uptown Chicago, uniting the Black Panthers, the Young LOrds and the Young Patriots. I'm looking for information on life in uptown from the point of view of members of the southern migration into the north, like yourself. A few ended up forming the Young Patriots, a group which sought to help alleviate some of the social and economic problems that many faced in uptown in the 60s. Is there anyway I could interview you through email or phone about your experiences, it would really help me understand how it was back then. If this sounds like something you could do, please respond and I will offer my email. Thank You.
