Interview with Myrlie Evers
QUESTION 49
INTERVIEWER:

YOU SAID THAT THE NEXT BULLET FROM THE ASSASSIN'S GUN AFTER THE, AFTER THE SECOND ACQUITAL—I MEAN SECOND HUNG JURY—YOU HAD SAID THAT THE NEXT BULLET FROM THE ASSASSIN'S GUN WILL BE IN THE BACK OF A WHITE MAN. WHAT DID YOU MEAN WHEN YOU SAID THAT?

Myrlie Evers:

I said that the next bullet that would be fired could possibly be fired at the back of a white man. And basically by that I meant that anyone who stood for justice and equality, who stood up as a leader, who took a public stand, and pulled people around him to fight for those same things, that his life or her life would be in danger as well. That the whole racism that is a cancer eating away at America, could very easily move from black to white, and as I said those words, it was only a few months later that President Kennedy was assassinated.

CAMERA CREW MEMBER:

LET'S CUT. THAT'S IT—BE TAKE FORTY-FOUR. TAKE FORTY-FIVE.
