Interview with Lawrence Guyot
QUESTION 40
INTERVIEWER:

TE—TELL ME AGAIN ABOUT THAT YOU WERE THE PRE—THAT YOU WERE THE CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMITTEE AND, AND, WHEN YOU WERE ARRESTED AND WHY.

Lawrence Guyot:

Well, OK. Despite the fact that I was state chairman of the Executive Committee of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, when its delegation went to Atlantic City, because of the fact that I had to—was arrested two days before that convention in Hattiesburg, I either had to go to jail at that time or people who had put up local residents and political supporters of mine from Hattiesburg would have lost some of their property because they'd put up some bond for me. There was no question of my ever being able to organize in Mississippi again if I did that so I had no choice but to go to Hattiesburg jail.

CAMERA CREW MEMBER:

RUN OUT. CAMERA ROLL FOURTEEN. CAMERA ROLL FOURTEEN.
