Analysis/Reflection

This interview is important because it helps to bring about hidden information that could not have been known without listening to her story or the story of someone who was around at Occidental College in the 1980s. Also, an almost step by step guide was given as to how she and Jim Montoya created and organized the Ad Hoc Committee.
