Interview with Rufus Lewis
QUESTION 6
INTERVIEWER:

DID YOU ALSO HAVE A CLUB HERE THAT WAS A PART OF THAT WHOLE …

Rufus Lewis:

Well, we had what was known as a citizens' club, and it was, well, we did everything the other clubs did, but in addition to that, we said, you had to be a registered voter to be a member of the citizens' club. Well, we had dances, we served drinks, and this, that and the other. But we didn't let people come in who were not members. If you wanted to become a member, and it was a popular club, you would have to get registered. And that was a little scheme in which we used to get a number of people registered.
