Interview with Amzie Moore
QUESTION 3
ARNDT:

AND YOU SAY IT WASN'T IT THE TEACHERS THAT WERE FOLLOWING THEM, IT WAS JUST REGULAR PEOPLE?

Amzie Moore:

Yes, reg…regular people. They was, they, they weren't…I, what I found out that, you know, what I really found out, it was just like leadership – cause you'd take the 18 year or 20 year old youngster, got on a pair of tight legged blue jeans and a blue shirt, that was something boy - and, and, and, and he's walking out there in front, and putting him in jail wasn't nothing, because they still went.[laughter] So I think this, this was an outstanding example of determined leadership in young people. I had never seen it before, I know that. And uh, Nat [unintelligible] wasn't afraid. He, they put him in jail and around different places.
