Interview with Nancy Jefferson
QUESTION 21
JUDY RICHARDSON:

If you could tell me how you felt about the agreement between Daley and the movement.

NANCY JEFFERSON:

The time of the agreement between Dr. King and Daley when they signed that accord, it was a great day. A great feeling. Because you, we understood the hardship that Dr. King went through to get that done. Whatever utterance of change that Daley had to do, weather it was--I'm sure that to Daley it was superfical, he wasn't real. One thing thatwe learned, and htat Dr. King always said so very cleverly was that: "you cooperate, I'll operate; you get the same result." So we were getting the same result, out of Daley having to operate, in spite of his non-cooperation. And I think it was a reat day for us to just say "keep on, you can do it." I think that's what it meant to us.

JUDY RICHARDSON:

OK, thank you!
