Interview with Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth
QUESTION 45
INTERVIEWER:

SHERIFF MEL BAILEY.

Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth:

Sheriff Mel Bailey was a, just a nicer type of policeman, I guess, in the crisis of things. He didn't have a lot to say. He wasn't out front, and Bull Connor overshadowed him. And he was, I think happy to, to have Bull Connor out there in front of him.
