QUESTION 13
INTERVIEWER:

WAS THE COMMUNITY REALLY TOGETHER THEN?

Gussie Nesbitt:

It was—yes sir. They really was. Every—everybody was together. And I remember the night when they bombed uh, Pastor King's house, I was living right around the corner from there. He was living on Jackson and I was living on Shawb - And we went out, went, he was, he wasn't there. His wife was in there with a small baby at that time. And somebody had done bombed his house. He was in a meeting. And when they got there all the colored peoples had had their weapons they had their guns and everything was ready. But King come out. He went in there and he said, my wife and baby's all right. He held up his hand and he said, put down your weapons. He said, this is non-violent. And so that's why I didn't… didn't… we didn't do anything that night, because I was… they was mine.
