Interview with Gov. John Patterson
QUESTION 46
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE'S HELP NOT BEING ABLE TO COME IN…

Gov. John Patterson:

Well, of course when the boycott started, a lot of the blacks rode the bus and the majority of people who rode the bus were blacks, they worked at, for white people in various parts of town, and of course the white businessman and the white housewife would go get their employee and bring them to work in their car and take them home at night. And of course this helped the boycott tremendously and there wasn't anything the city could do about it.
