Interview with Rufus Lewis
QUESTION 32
INTERVIEWER:

WERE YOU EVER DISCOURAGED? THIS WAS A LONG, LONG BOYCOTT, OVER A YEAR. DID YOU EVER GET DISCOURAGED DURING THAT TIME?

Rufus Lewis:

I don't know whether you'd even think about being discouraged. If you hear Reverend King talk, if you get into the conversation, or into the meetings, or into the services, you're inspired. You're not, you're not discouraged. The job may be extremely difficult, but you are inspired to do it, irrespective of the difficulty. He was, he was a character that stimulated and moved people. You can see that—he has moved the country.
