Interview with Robert Moses
QUESTION 5
INTERVIEWER:

NOW, HOW DID, DESCRIBE TO ME IN VERY GOOD DETAIL OF HOW YOU WOULD THEN GET PEOPLE TO COME OUT AND TO REGISTER TO VOTE?

Robert Moses:

The first project actually got started in McComb and what we faced initially was state resistance or resistance organized at the state level. For example, the first people that we took down to register in Liberty, which is a small town in Ames County, outside of McComb, on our way back it was the highway patrolman, who had been at the office all the time that we were there who flagged us down, and began talking to the people who had tried to register. And then when I got out of the car to ask him a question, he arrested me and brought me in to the county jail there in Magnolia in Pike county. And I spent a couple days in jail when I refused to accept the sentence of the judge. So, at the very first level I think it was organized at the state level, that is the highway patrolman, the officers of the various counties were what you were facing up against. **Now, I'm not sure 'cause you said a minute and a half, or a minute, now—
