Interview with Bob Mants
QUESTION 5
CARROLL BLUE:

Now getting back to that question of Black Power again. Go back over it again. I want to put it in the context of Lowndes County and what was happening. Can you describe to us what Black Power means?

BOB MANTS:

Well I think what Black Power meant then and means still means the same thing. It means the self determination of people. People being able to participate in the decisions that affect our lives; politically, socially, economically, culturally, ah, to put it very, ah, ah, succinctly that people have an opportunity to participate in decisions that affect their lives. And that means, ah, Black Power.
