Interview with Taylor Rogers

Okay, I want you to think back. There you are with your two young sons on that march that Dr. King led. What did you see? What did you do?


Well, we really couldn't do anything but try to stay out of the way and watch what was happening. People was looting, you know, it was, and the tragic part about it, all this happened on Beale Street in the Black community part. Ah, stuff on Main Street didn't get touched hardly. But now Dr. King was at probably Main and Gayoso and when it all broke out, they just surrounded Dr. King, put him in a car, and took him, you know, just take him plum out of the, out of the picture.
