Interview with Amzie Moore
QUESTION 4
ARNDT:

TELL ME, WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT NOT BEING AFRAID UM, DURING THE TILL TRIAL, CAN YOU TELL ME HOW THAT HAPPENED, WHEN, WHEN UM, THE GRANDFATHER FIRST CALLED YOU TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE FACT THAT TILL WAS MISSING?

Amzie Moore:

He called me on a Wednesday and told me that Emmett was missing. Then I thought to myself - well, he's just probably around Greenwood there somewhere, I never thought nobody was going to lynch him. On Thursday I got another call. Well, then I decided I'd go to Greenwood and [unintelligible] say - you'd better not go, they, they, they watching out for you, they going to kill you. But I went over there. And when I got to Money…nobody would tell me where Mr. Wright lived. He lived out from Money, but nobody would, claim they didn't know where he was. So I left and come back. And then by Monday they'd done lynched him I believe…fire coal. And I told that they had passed through Cleveland and went to Rosedale to the Mississippi River and that they had to put him in there, but they didn't. And they carried him back over there…Sunflower County Farm.
