Interview with Robert Lucas
QUESTION 6
JUDY RICHARDSON:

To go back to the non violence and the north. Do you think that non violence as a philosophy could work any more?

ROBERT LUCAS:

Not, not really, those of us--

JUDY RICHARDSON:

I'm sorry if you could say nonviolence--

ROBERT LUCAS:

Oh, nonviolence as a philosophical commitment I don't think could work in the North. Those of us that applied nonviolence, ah, CORE and SNCC and other groups, we simply used it as a, as a tactic. Some people, well, was philosophically committed to it but we were not. In fact the only times that we used nonviolence was during the time of an actual demonstration or something of that nature.
