Interview with John Lewis
QUESTION 2
JAMES A. DeVINNEY:

Why do you think he had respect and admiration for SNCC.

JOHN LEWIS:

Malcolm saw SNCC young people, the young Black and White students, ah, not just from the North but those young and Black students working in the South, as being, ah, something like guerrilla warriors. They were out there on the cutting edge. Ah, and he kept saying, in a sense, that we're here we, we, we will be there and be supportive. He kept saying, if they don't listen to you, then they will have to deal with us.
