Interview with James L. Hicks
QUESTION 2
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WAS THAT MADE THE BLACK VETERANS SO ACTIVE?

James L. Hicks:

Well, being over there, and moving in concert with whites, so that when somebody said, let's do it, they were trained to get up and do it. So that when they came back from overseas, they automatically a, some of those who a, possessed leadership would step into the knots where the officers had been and they would take over and say lets do it.
