SO THEN WHAT HAPPENED WHEN YOU HEARD ABOUT THE SIT-INS IN GREENSBORO?
Well I think we were probably, we were—actually it's ironic in a sense. We were planning in Nashville to do something ourselves. We didn't know exactly what we were going to do, or when we were going to do it, or necessarily how in terms of the various specifics, but then this whole fall period we were talking about doing something. In fact we were thinking about waiting until the spring to have some kind of action when we get mobilized and had organized ourselves better and expanded outward to larger campuses. Most of the activity was centered at Fisk which was kind of tough because you know Fisk is a school where a lot of people send their young people to get an education and to grow up right, proper, and not to be talking about demonstrations or other things, but over at Tennessee State it was—there were some people who were also interested. So we were interested in maybe doing something in the spring. So when February 1st came in, and we read about it and Jim Lawson had some contact with some people in Greensboro. And I guess on that Sunday or Monday right after that happened he knew a lot about that and we had a meeting that week, middle of the week, in fact, Tuesday or Wednesday, and we had a major demonstration next Saturday which I think, thinking about, was probably the 8th or 9th of February—was the Saturday after the first series of demonstrations in Greensboro. So we, I think we were probably better prepared to do it.
