Interview with Rudolph Lee
QUESTION 31
INTERVIEWER:

DID, WHEN, WHEN, WHEN SHE GOT YOU INVOLVED IN THE DEMONSTRATIONS, HOW DID YOU PERSONALLY GET INVOLVED? UM, IN TERMS OF HOW DID SHE EXPLAIN TO YOU WHAT, WHAT WAS GOING ON THROUGH THE DEMONSTRATIONS?

Rudolph Lee:

Well, in a sense, the way she explained it to me as far as what she was doin', she sayin' and she motivated me to, to take part was that she said well, as far as like you, riding the bus. Or you bein' able to go in restaurants and sit down and eat with whites, she said, this, what we are doin', we hope that as a result of this, that we as black people will have equal rights as everyone else. And somehow she got the message across as… because maybe her motivation alone, motivated me to participate. Because she was very much into it. Because she believed in freedom for blacks.
