Interview with Rev. James Lawson


Rev. James Lawson:

Well, on February the 1st, 1960, when Ezell and three other persons sat in at Woolworth's in Greensboro, I applauded it but also said, but you see, you should have started it earlier in Nashville, 'cause we were ready, by that time. We had a core of people committed, that we had permitted December, we had permitted Christmas to interfere with us and we'd permitted exams, because I was then back in theological school also at Vanderbilt University.
