Leroy Dillard
Known affectionately as Coach Dillard or Coach Dill by friends and students at Westinghouse High School, Leroy Dillard recalls a similar Pittsburgh.Born and raised in the Hill, he was an All-City lineman for Fifth Avenue High School in the mid-1960s.In the Hill of his youth, he said, "people got along," and the neighborhood's diversity made it interesting."You could go down to what they called Old Jew Town on Logan Street, get any kind of food you wanted, clothes you wanted.You had the Italians and you had blacks and you had Orientals, Chinese restaurants and so forth."
The racism Mr. Dillard witnessed related primarily to jobs.Stores generally hired white guys "with an apron on, waiting on people, bagging their groceries," while "black guys would be in the back sweeping and cleaning up."
