Interview with C. T. Vivian
QUESTION 128
INTERVIEWER:

O.K., SO WHAT WAS IT…

C. T. Vivian:

One of the things that characterized Selma was what was called the Selma Wall. The Selma Wall was when people began to demonstrate, as they started downtown they were met by police forces and where they met was called the Wall, in fact, the police even put some uh, wooden horses uh, in-between us at one point, uh, and we stood there across that line looking at each other, sharing with each other, talking with each other. The policemen hardly talked but we were making uh, uh, our statements to them and trying to make them understand what we were doing. But that place became the Selma- we stayed in it night after night even in the rain we were at the Selma Wall.
