Interview with David Dawley
QUESTION 11
DALE ROSEN:

What I'm going to do is just ask you these two questions. What did you think of Willie Ricks and what you sort of and why did you leave the march, and that you left shortly thereafter after Greenwood?


DALE ROSEN:

What did you think of Willie Ricks?

DAVID DAWLEY:

I thought Willie Ricks was angry. I resented his anger. That for me an emotional baptism to Blackness. I had to experience emotions, ah, through Willie Ricks, ah, where before perhaps the experience has been more clinical of going to the march and participating, and that was safe and that was comfortable. Willie Ricks made the march uncomfortable. He made the, ah, the feelings between Blacks and Whites uncomfortable.
