WHY DID JIM REEB GO TO SELMA?
Well, Jim Reeb went to Selma in uh, in response to that telegram that I received and that plenty of other people all over the country received from Martin Luther King. As soon as we heard that he wanted a large number of people from various denominations down there, we notified our ministers and Jim Reeb was uh, one of those who went. They went all of them of their own volition. But of course, to help in whatever way they could.
