Interview with C. T. Vivian
QUESTION 122
INTERVIEWER:

CAN, CAN YOU, IS IT POSSIBLE TO GIVE A, SORT OF A CONCISE LEAD UP TO JUST WHAT HAPPENED THERE BRIEFLY AND THEN SO WE CAN GO TO ANOTHER QUESTION

C. T. Vivian:

In fact, I'm trying to remember it that well myself. Uh, uh, see, I'm trying to remember details that would make it any different from any other situation. I mean we, we gathered at, at the Brown Chapel Church, all right, and we came out of the church and started down the street, and that's when we were stopped, all right? But that's, I mean it's a normal story.

FILM PRODUCTION TEAM:

IT WAS THE FIRST TIME YOU WERE, IT WAS THE FIRST TIME YOU WERE STOPPED THAT CLOSE TO THE CHURCH, THOUGH, ISN'T IT?

C. T. Vivian:

Yes, I think so, I think it was the first time we were stopped that close to the church, right, yes.

FILM PRODUCTION TEAM:

AND THAT WAS WHAT LEADS TO THE SELMA WALL.

C. T. Vivian:

That's right, that's right, that's what led to the Selma Wall.

FILM PRODUCTION TEAM:

I THINK THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE AFTER. I THINK THEY'RE ALSO AFTER THE FACT THAT WILSON INTERCEPTED YOU BUT THERE WAS CLARK AND HIS POSSE THERE WAITING FOR YOU.
