Interview with Mary L. Hightower
QUESTION 2
JACKIE SHEARER:

Why were you involved in voter registration?

MARY HIGHTOWER:

Well, um, we were, it was really, the 1967 election that really got us really geared to get more involved in voter registration. We had a slate of candidates in '67, and we only ended up electing three people, and that was one of the problems that we realized, is that we didn't have enough people registered to vote, and a lot of them that were registered vote, we needed voter education. So, this was one of our major projects at that time.

JACKIE SHEARER:

Cut. JT, is that killing us?
