Interview with Robert Lucas

What do you think you learned?


Well, one thing we learned, see, up to that point, ah, me being a member of CORE, when we found some institution that was discriminating, etcetera, what we would do is, is, is have a meeting and involve ourselves in a lot of rhetoric and the next morning, you know, get some picket signs and march around this particular, ah, institution or store, whatever the case was at the time. But at least we learned from Dr. King, SCLC that one should have a program, you know, for, for freedom. In other words if you want to protest, you know, for the schools against school segregation, then there should be some sort of well thought out program. So you can determine, you know, if, if you are achieving anything. So we learned that from Dr. King and SCLC.
