Title

Board Meeting, [52] June 19, 1978, Citizens' Comments: President Albert J. Smith (part three of three)

Abstract

President Albert J. Smith gives an impassioned speech in defense of the Village's legal actions in the lawsuits aimed at preventing the neo-Nazi group led by Frank Collin from demonstrating in Skokie. Smith is speaking largely in response to an angry exchange between Jacob Berg, of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) and Trustee Morris Topol.

Please note: Much of this speech is difficult to hear due to sound problems in the original recording.
