Interview with James Peck
QUESTION 24
INTERVIEWER:

I GUESS THE LAST QUESTION I WANT TO ASK IS… THERE WAS A PARTICULAR KIND OF UNITY… AT THAT POINT WHICH ALLOWED A LOT OF PEOPLE TO GET TOGETHER AND GO TOWARD A COMMON GOAL.

James Peck:

Yes. Well, also you gotta understand that this unity was made possible because the… uh, uh… CORE and SNCC were not political organizations. You didn't have the usual fights between the C.P. and the S.W.P. and the factionalism. They were… people were united on nonviolence and united on the goals.
