OK, SO I WANT YOU TO TALK ABOUT YOUR, YOUR HUSBAND'S ROLE, THE ROLE HE PLAYED IN THE TRIAL OF EMMETT TILL IN HELPING TO GET THE WITNESSES TOGETHER.
Medgar played a very important role, I feel, in uh, the Emmett Till case. Uh, as field secretary for the NAACP uh, a part of his uh, responsibility was to investigate murders. Um, he and Amzie Moore and a few others dressed as sharecroppers uh, would change cars to trucks and what-not, go on the plantations uh, ask people, go into the communities and ask people information uh, about uh, the murderers or the accused murderers uh, what had happened uh, of certainly making contact with the local officials and uh, getting the press out. And it was a very dangerous job uh, at that particular time. Medgar was also responsible, not only for finding witnesses but helping to get them out of town, and I remember uh, one very distinct case where he used a casket, and put a person in a casket uh, and, and uh, in conjunction with a mortuary, and got the person out of town, out of town, out of the state, across the border, to Tennessee, and then north.
THIS WILL BE TAKE ELEVEN. SPEED. AND MARKING.
