Curtis Jones:

Yeah, at the time, uh, I really didn't realize, uh, how brave my grandfather Mose Wright was, you know. But, uh, after I got older, I realized that he was a brave man, he was a mighty brave man to travel back down there, you know, among all those hostile peoples, and testify, and to get up in the court and point his finger at a white man and accuse him of murder.** He was the first black man ever did that in the state of Mississippi. And I think that's, most of that courage come from him being a preacher, you know, leading peoples, you know. That's where you get, got his courage from.
