Interview with Rufus Lewis
QUESTION 26
INTERVIEWER:

I'M GOING TO ASK YOU AGAIN IF YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT THE DISPATCH CENTER, AND YOU WERE ABOUT TO TELL ME ABOUT HOW THAT WORKED.

Rufus Lewis:

Well, the transportation center was a place, a vacant lot, downtown, rather the parking lot downtown that we were able to use. The cars that came from the various sections of the county, I mean, the city, or the county, they would bring all the people in that area, and there would make the transfer. Some people coming from North Alabama had to go to East Alabama. And we'd bring them all in, and get them re-classified, as far as the directions in which they were going, and send them on home. That was our, our main headquarters down in the heart of Montgomery.**
