Interview with Amzie Moore
QUESTION 3
PRUDENCE ARNDT:

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

Amzie Moore:

Yes, 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 eighteen-year or twenty-year-old youngster, got on a pair of tight legged blue jeans and a blue shirt—that was something, boy—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 Nat [unintelligible] wasn't afraid. He, they put him in jail and around different places.
