Interview with Diane Nash
QUESTION 6
INTERVIEWER:

USING IT TO CONFRONT THOSE WHO WERE FIGHTING AGAINST YOU.

Diane Nash:

We felt we were right. We felt we were right and rational. When we took a position that segregation was, was wrong, and we really tried to be open and honest and loving with our opposition. A person who is being truthful and honest, actually is, is standing in a much more powerful position than a person who's lying, or trying to maintain his preference, even though on some level he knows he's wrong. I think, on some level, most people really deep-down know that segregation was wrong, just based on race, and disregarding everything else about the person.
