Interview with John Hulett
QUESTION 15
JAMES A. DeVINNEY:

I'd like to continue though and go up to the part where Mary Jane Jackson decided that she had to go out.

JOHN HULETT:

I don't remember exactly the time that she had to go out, but it, we, we know that during that time, most of them had been inside, but when Mrs. Jackson would go out, she would, if people was out there who tried to hinder people, she was real strong, and one of the strongest persons we almost had in this county. And she would just tell them to their face, "You all can go home, because we're going to have our meeting and we're going to do what needs to be done to, you know, to survive." And that's the kind of, her husband was a strong person. He was kind of one of those, those bodyguards for us. And there were other neighbors in this area who would do that.
