Interview with Gussie Nesbitt
QUESTION 4
INTERVIEWER:

GET A, UH, ANY PAPER ON IT TO TELL YOU THAT THERE WAS GOING TO BE A BOYCOTT?

Gussie Nesbitt:

Yes. It was announced in uh, the church, it was first organized at Mt. Vine Church. And they told us all then that we were going to start boycotting. And that night when they was all organized, Pastor King was the last man walked in. And he sit in the back. And when he sit in the back, E. D. Nixon pointed to him and said, "There's our leader." And he said, he wrestled with it all night. He couldn't go to bed. And he wrestled with it all night to see if he would take it. And said he asked the Lord to show him. And so sitting at the table he drank the cup of coffee. And sitting it at the table he leaned over on the table and he must have dozed off to sleep, but it come before him to take it. And so he's the organizer that night. And then the next boycott, when we had the full gathering of the boycott was at the Holt Street Baptist Church which I didn't attend that night because my husband was real sick.
