It was really a motley crew with a variety of people and probably about half men and women, uh, probably a strong percentage of professional people, teachers, doctors, and uh, a few ministers, maybe uh two or three, besides myself. Um, but the rest were very ordinary people uh, uh, housewives, and uh ordinary people who were just deeply concerned about what was happening in Selma.
