Interview with Courtland Cox
QUESTION 8
INTERVIEWER:

SO WHO SPOKE TO WHO FIRST?

Courtland Cox:

I think that, prob—probably the, the people who spoke first were A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin. I think the people who came in second were the, the SNCC'S, the CORE'S. Ah I think the people who came in third were the ah NAA—Urban League. People who came in fourth were members of the religious community, Protestant, Jewish, and and ah Catholic. And on top of all of that was the Kennedy administration wanting to make sure that that notion was within the bounds of the, the their political process.
