Interview with Charles Diggs
QUESTION 30
INTERVIEWER:

THE, I WAS GOING TO ASK DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN THE BOYCOTT ENDED, DO YOU REMEMBER YOUR REACTION TO HEARING THAT IT WAS OVER AND HAD BEEN SUCCESSFUL? FINALLY?

Charles Diggs:

Well, I I the the the general reaction certainly on the part of uh Blacks and and their supporters was one of jubilation er and er of relief that er this method er proved to be successful. Uh, many people had been advocating this kind of solidarity in the past but er to have it actually demonstrated in such a dramatic way as it was uh, in the Montgomery boycott situation, er um I think er lifted the veil, er, that had er shut off er, er consideration of Blacks toward this kind of method in the past.
