Interview with Amzie Moore
QUESTION 22
ARNDT:

OKAY… UM, WHAT, DURING THE TILL TRIAL, WHAT WAS THE COURTROOM, LIKE ON THAT FIRST DAY OF THE TILL TRIAL?

Amzie Moore:

Well, I don't think I could give you an accurate and complete description of what the courtroom was like because it was surrounded inside and outside by people, Tallahassee County, white - and we could not stand in the halls, nor could we sit down in there because the courtroom, with the exception of very few people, were white. I would assume that white people from all over Tallahassee County filled the courtroom. And they didn't left, didn't leave much room rather for blacks. So WLW, that's New Orleans, television, I think it's WLW, uh, had their cameras and everything, outside, and there were quite a few people around the cameras there in Sumner, Mississippi.
