Interview with Rev. Joseph Ellwanger
QUESTION 5
INTERVIEWER:

WELL, WHEN YOU SAID "WE," WERE THERE OTHER PEOPLE IN YOUR GROUP THAT WERE CONCERNED?

Rev. Joseph Ellwanger:

I'm thinking especially of the uh, Birmingham Council on Human Relations which was uh, the one integrated group in Birmingham, Alabama that met on a regular basis. And our whole uh, reason for existence was to uh, uh know about and to uh, express concern and act on behalf of people who were being uh, hurt and discriminated against and so even though this was a hundred miles away south of Birmingham, uh, we sensed uh, a closeness and a concern.
