Interview with Reverend Dana Greeley
QUESTION 10
INTERVIEWER:

NOW, AFTER REV. REEB DIED, YOU WENT TO SELMA, UM, AND I'M WONDERING AS YOU MADE YOUR DECISION TO GO, AGAIN, WAS IT A SITUATION YOU FELT YOU HAD TO GO THERE THEN BECAUSE OF THIS VICIOUS ATTACK ON REV. REEB?

Rev. Dana Greeley:

Yes, I think we felt that we had to go there, uh, partly as a result of the vicious attack on uh, on uh, Reeb. But I will say that there'd been a considerable concern on our part with regard to the whole situation. I don't believe as many of us would've gone. I have to acknowledge this and we wouldn't have gone officially as a Unitarian Universalists Association Board of Trustees if it had not been for the attack on Jim Reeb. But I think that uh, that uh, we were there in spirit before that attack on Jim Reeb. Or, or, our three young ministers. And uh, uh, I, I would say that we would've been pretty well represented but not as widely represented of course. Uh, uh, except for that attack on, on those three young men.
