Interview with Laurie Pritchett
QUESTION 11
INTERVIEWER:

OKAY, TELL ME ABOUT THE USE OF THE BLACK INFORMANTS

Chief Laurie Pritchett:

Well, you have to realize that even some of the people in the Albany Movement uh, which coordinated with Dr. King's movement, were not totally uh, satisfied. They were not sure that Dr. King being there was the right thing. They knew that once, as they stated to me - he comes in and when he leaves, he's gone, we have to live here. So some, these people cooperated with me. Uh, some of the leaders in the uh, Albany movement uh, cooperated with me uh, as far as information was concerned and uh, during all our turmoils there - not only, I didn't classify ‘em as, as informers, they were people who I respected, who respected me, and uh, uh, they cooperated with us in our uh, struggle there.
