Interview with James Bevel
QUESTION 33
JAMES A. DEVINNEY:

In terms of Selma, do you think that that was one of the best organized campaigns that was part of the whole civil rights movement?

JAMES BEVEL:

I would say that in terms of, yeah, probably more classical, and better, probably thought out better. If you studied it in terms of Chuck Fager's book or in other books, I think you'll find that the application and the response is probably more accurate. I think it's because it's constitutionally clearer. I think there's a lot of growth and discipline in the people who were involved, and I think the need was clearer and necessary, and I think that's why it was maybe more of a classical movement than the other movements.
