Interview with Wyatt Tee Walker
QUESTION 1
INTERVIEWER:

REVEREND WALKER, WHEN WAS THE MOMENT THAT YOU FELT PART OF THE MOVEMENT AND, AND NO LONGER AN INDIVIDUAL?

Wyatt Tee Walker:

When did I feel a part of the Movement? I guess, you…when you speak of "The Movement" I suppose you refer to the halcyon days of the sixties, but I always felt as an individual that I was a part of that invisible fabric of black people who were struggling for justice and freedom. I grew up in a home with Fred Douglass on the wall. My daddy, a Baptist preacher like myself, was a race man. And my first sit in was at nine years-old at a theater in a little town in southern Jersey where I grew up, which didn't allow black folks - colored as we were known then - to come in. So, I've always felt involved in the struggle against systemic racism.
