Interview with Richard Valeriani
QUESTION 1
INTERVIEWER:

HOW DID THE SELMA CAMPAIGN COMPARE TO OTHER CAMPAIGNS IN TERMS OF LEADERSHIP AND THE SOPHISTICATION, IF AT ALL, OF THE LEADERS OF THAT MOVEMENT.

Richard Valeriani:

I think the Selma campaign was kind of a culmination of the movement. They had gone through the exercise in Albany, Georgia where it was not too successful, they had the experience of Birmingham, where it was quite successful so they had refined a lot of their techniques and so I think Selma was carried out with that experience.
