Interview with Bayard Rustin
QUESTION 58
INTERVIEWER:

AFTER THE MARCH, WHAT WERE YOUR FEELINGS THEN? JUST ANOTHER MARCH?

Bayard Rustin:

Oh no, absolutely elated. You mean from Selma to Montgomery, yes. Mr. Randolph and I were sitting right next to Doctor King. [cough] He stood up to make his final speech there. And that we knew that the circle had been rounded. That they had said we would never get to Montgomery to address, the [seat?] of Jefferson Davis and that we were there in such numbers, Ralph Bunche, everybody was there. And that was a very important day.
