Interview with John Hulett
QUESTION 8
JAMES A. DeVINNEY:

So this was really Black people beginning to stand up and take care of business themselves.

JOHN HULETT:

For themselves, this is true.

JAMES A. DeVINNEY:

Can you talk about that just a little?

JOHN HULETT:

Yes, I, I could. That was everything that encouraged us a lot when we had, needs and things of this type, for a family that didn't have jobs. Most people during that, those days, especially if he was a tractor driver, and worked on a plantation, they was paying four to six dollars a day. And they got it for the best tractor drivers. We'd start looking for jobs in Montgomery, Selma and other places to provide them with jobs, so they could, would have a job, they wouldn't have to go on these farms for little or nothing.
