Interview with Casey Hayden
QUESTION 6
INTERVIEWER:

WERE YOU UM, FEARFUL ABOUT THE WHOLE THING ABOUT GOING INTO MISSISSIPPI AS A WHITE WOMAN OF WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN?

Casey Hayden:

Well, you know when I look back I can't believe the things [laughter] I did. I was very seldom afraid, uh, and I tried lately to, I've been doing some writing lately and I've been trying to figure out why and I think it's because I was so naïve that I, I still, it was somehow as though because what we were doing was right there was some protection in it. Um, it was sort of a children's crusade in a way, we were very young, and there was, it was as though there was this armor of righteousness that we were all clothed in or sheathed in, and uh, amazing, you know when I look back on it. But I was very seldom really physically fearful.
