Interview with Lawrence Guyot
QUESTION 46
INTERVIEWER:

CUT. AS CONCISE AS YOU CAN MAKE IT.

Lawrence Guyot:

Gotcha. After Atlantic City, after our victory in Atlantic City, Allen Lowenstien, Bayard Rustin, the NAACP, and quite a few other Civil Rights Organizations began to raise the whole Communist scare. That we were dealing with communist, uh, associates and this was foolish. It didn't mean a thing to us. We had, we had dealt with that question earlier. We were concerned about the best legal representation. We got that and we did not respond to the whole question of Communist infiltration. We thought that was foolish, irrelevant, and we went about our business of mobilizing our people to their interest. And there's a need to do that to—and there will always be as long as black people are in this country.

CAMERA CREW MEMBER:

GOT IT IN. [laughter].
