Interview with Victoria Gray Adams
QUESTION 21
INTERVIEWER:

OK, MY LAST QUESTION IS WHAT DID WHAT DID THE MFDP LEARN FROM THE ‘64 CONVENTION CHALLENGE?

Victoria Gray Adams:

The MFDP learned and I hope the you know, far more than just the MFDP, was that if people are given relevant education as to what their rights are, if they are given relevant education as to what an issue is all about, and then you know, organize around that particular issue—whatever it happens to be—voting rights or whatever, then you know your potential for whatever it is you need to, to get is absolutely unlimited. You can do anything you need to do if you know why you need to do it and you know how to do it. You have the strength to do it. And that's what it's all about is relevant education and effective organization. Anybody anywhere around any issue can do that and can accomplish whatever it is they need to accomplish. At least that's what I think.
