Interview with Rachel Nelson West
QUESTION 13
INTERVIEWER:

WHEN YOU SAW THEM COMING DOWN THE STREET WHAT DID YOU THINK?

West:

Well, I guess they was tired of being called Uncle Tom's, because it just seems, that, that is the way they were. You know, we out trying to get the black people the right to vote, and they, I guess the main thing they was concerned about was losing their jobs. Most of them was afraid of losing their jobs. Mainly they was just afraid. You know simply because of the riots, and what may break out and everything. So it was good to see them once participate in the marches.
