Interview with Tony Gittens

When you talk about the student demonstrations, can you talk about going down to Orangeburg and maybe give me a little bit how you went first to Lowndes County the summer before, and then go into Orangeburg and what that did to you.


It was the summer I believe of '66 that, ah, I first went down south. Ah, and it was a SNCC project and they had come up and, ah, asked some students if they would come down and work in the South. I think it was during the spring, I can't recall, I'd have to check my calendar and such, but and, ah, so some of us organized and, ah, took.
