QUESTION 4
INTERVIEWER:

UH, WHAT, UM, DID YOU HAVE ANY FEELINGS OR, OR FEELINGS ABOUT, IN TERMS OF YOURSELF IN TERMS OF WHAT YOU WERE, YOU WERE FACING IN TERMS OF WHITE MISSISSIPPI DOWN THERE, AS A KID OF SEVENTEEN?

Curtis Jones:

No, I really hadn't been exposed to uh, too much of race and this, and uh, I really didn't know. We was going down to have a good time cause I had, uh, three young, young uncles who was younger than I was, only four. Um, we was going down there to pick some cotton, cause I'd never picked any cotton before, and I was looking forward to do that, cause I had told my mother that I could pick two hundred pounds, and she told me I couldn't, you know. So, we was going down there to look for a good time, you know.
