E.D. Nixon was one of the few black men who was not afraid in Montgomery. When I went to Alabama State in forty-nine, E.D. Nixon had an organization. And it tried, but there were very few people who worked with him for various reasons of which I cannot state. But his organization, though he protested individually, it didn't have too much power behind it because it was small in number. Mr. Lewis also had an organization, the Citizen's Council, but the following was not great enough to be of too much of a threat.
