Interview with Reverend Dana Greeley
QUESTION 5
INTERVIEWER:

REV. GREELEY, HOW DID YOU FIRST HEAR ABOUT THE ATTACK ON REVEREND REEB?

Rev. Dana Greeley:

Well, we had a uh telegram first from uh, Martin Luther King of course, asking us all to come down, but I think that my first uh, word about the actual attack on Mar, on uh Jim Reeb was from Homer Jack who was on our staff at that time as Director of Social Responsibility. Actually he had called me that very evening in Philadelphia. I was at a uh, committee meeting in Philadelphia. He called me early in the evening to tell me that every thing was all right. He was there with quite a few of our uh ministers and lay people and uh, it was uh, c— considerably later the same night that he called me again to say that everything was not all right. So I guess it was by telephone uh, the uh, that night that I first heard about the attack on Jim Reeb himself.
