Interview with Unita Blackwell
QUESTION 15
INTERVIEWER:

NOW, SPEAKING ABOUT THAT COURAGE AND THE IDEA OF WHAT YOU COULD LOSE, BECAUSE YOU COULD LOSE YOUR LIFE, HOW DID, WHAT HA—HOW DID PEOPLE RESPOND TO SOMEONE LIKE MEDGAR EVERS, HIS DEATH AT THAT TIME? WHAT DID THAT SAY TO BLACK MISSISSIPPIANS AT THAT TIME?

Unita Blackwell:

We were always knowing that death was always around. That's the strangest thing I suppose for a lot of people to understand about us, that we always knew that death was always near, that it was always something.
