Interview with Minnie Dunlap
QUESTION 25
SAM POLLARD:

OK, Mrs. Dunlap, tell me about the, the, that you were cooking 200 dinners the night before the march and you got sick and you couldn't go, and what you saw when you watched the march on television the next day and how you felt.

MINNIE DUNLAP:

Saturday before the march we wa- co- I was cooking 200 dinners to sell so we could purchase buses to go on that march. On, and then the next day when march was, I got sick and I couldn't go, so I watched it from my TV. And I was upset, I was angry, I just could not understand why that kind of hostility was going on and, and all the prejudiceness that was in there. And when they start throwing those rotten eggs and rocks and start turning over the buses and one of the little cars that we had got, that someone set it on fire, I just wasn't quite as nonviolent as I thought I was 'cause I think if I had been there I would have just hit back.

SAM POLLARD:

OK, good, good, very good.
