The following is a statement on the incident from Washington Post Executive Editor Martin D. Baron:Wesley has briefed us on what occurred, and there was absolutely no justification for his
arrest.He was illegally instructed to stop taking video of officers. Then he followed officers’ instructions to leave a McDonald’s — and after contradictory instructions on how to exit, he was slammed against a soda machine and then handcuffed. That behavior was wholly unwarranted and an assault on the freedom of the press to cover the news. The physical risk to Wesley himself is obvious and outrageous.

Harvey Boyd reflects on his extraordinary life and opportunities as an African American man during the time of segregation. He begins by describing his childhood home--which is still his current residence--in Crestdale, North Carolina, located southeast of Charlotte in Matthews. During the interview, Harvey emphasizes his passion for art, and the black community’s view that becoming an artist was not an option for an African American man at the time. Harvey decided to transfer to West Charlotte High School in order to take art classes, and afterward he attended CPCC, acquiring an Associate’s degree in graphic design.

Harvey recounts his experiences working for the Charlotte Observer in advertising, particularly in regard to the moments when he became more aware of segregation. After working in Charlotte for a few years, Harvey attended Howard University in Washington, DC and worked for the Washington Post. Harvey describes the differences he saw in a non-segregated city and his experiences as both an employee at the Washington Post and a student at Howard University. He emphasizes the influence of one of his African American art professors--Lois Mailou Jones--who confirmed that a career as an artist was possible for an African American.
