Interview with J. W. Kellum and Amzie Moore
QUESTION 16
INTERVIEWER:

COULD SOMEONE BLACK GO IN THE COURTHOUSE IF THEY WANTED TO DURING THE TRIAL?

Amzie Moore:

If you were there on, on time you could get in. The whole thing is coming from twenty, twenty-five miles away just threw you late always. And, but I think, in all of the lynchings that have taken place in Mississippi across the years, this was the most publicized trial, lynching that I've ever seen. Because, I think what really surprised me was the television, the news media and the people who came in here by helicopter, by running additional lines to get the news out.
