Interview with Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth
QUESTION 55
INTERVIEWER:

...THAT THINGS WERE GOING TO CHANGE FOREVER AS FAR AS THE WHOLE TRADITIONAL CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT WAS CONCERNED, THERE WOULD NO LONGER BE THAT COMING TOGETHER AS IT, AS IT WAS THERE.

Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth:

I was aware of this, and it was growing I think we came to the conclusion, we had, if we had to go our separate ways, we would still represent the movement, wherein everybody could participate including the SNCC people who had become quite distant at this time. And, and several times even in the marches they would try, they would want to sit down in the street when we were going on. And I was there. They respected the personalities of the movement, they really felt that we should be doing things differently, getting people jailed. At this particular time we, we had to go the way we were going, and I can't say that there wasn't a great deal of difference but we had about mind, we had to go our separate ways, we would still be friends and together.
