Interview with Albert Raby

Tell me what was going on in your mind and in the movement at the time of this rally.


Well, we in Chicago, who were attending the rally were very excited number one by, by Martin King coming to Chicago for one of the largest rallies held in the United States. And two, by the summer project that was going on in Mississippi and were, were saddened that day by the news that we received while on the platform that the bodies of the three civil rights workers had been discovered in, in a Mississippi grave. So that it was both an exhilarating day and a sad day, but a challenging day in which the Mississippi project probably was the major concern. Locally, putting on the rally had been the big activity of that period.
