Interview with Senator Roxanne Jones
QUESTION 16
PAUL STECKLER:

Now some people would say the government really wasn't in much of a mood to listen to people at that point.

ROXANNE JONES:

Well I think that's true, the government wasn't. But you see, this is why people like us always had to fight and push and get ugly in order to make the government do anything or legislators to a think, they just was about business as usual, but that's what it took, the Poor People's Movement, to get a lot of things started in the various different states.
