Interview with Dave Dennis
QUESTION 13
INTERVIEWER:

OK, YOU WERE BEGINNING TO TALK ABOUT ON THE DAY…

Dave Dennis:

Well um, on the day that Medgar was killed we had had several different encounters, you know uh, they were some related and not related. We had traded cars earlier that day, I was working and uh, primarily at that time I had some work doing, was doing some work in Canton, Mississippi, so I had been uh followed a lot in my car and stuff by the police and everything so I wanted to go in and get some work done, without that, so I traded cars, used Medgar's car, Medgar used my car. Well, then on the evening when we got back together, he was told me the story about the fact that he had uh, been uh, almost been run down by a car, you know, while he was trying to get into my car. So he was teasing me about the fact a man could get killed in this car. And I told him well, I had had an incident too, I'd been stopped by some Klan members and stuff like that over there and uh, so we just joked about that. And then he asked me he said well, after the rally we wanna go to his house he had asked why don't I come by and I told him no, a person would get killed you know. So we laughed about it and uh, that was the last time I saw him alive.
