Interview with Wyatt Tee Walker
QUESTION 24
INTERVIEWER:

OK, WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME…[unintelligible]

Wyatt Tee Walker:

It's sad to me that even from this brief historical vantage point in history that we do not appreciate the significance of Birmingham. One must realize that the customs and morals that had been in place for more than a hundred years changed abruptly with the Birmingham campaign. And, it just gets lost among other civil rights campaigns. For me, Birmingham is the chief watershed and is really as significant as the Civil War, but it was fought without guns and muskets and without the shedding of blood, in the sense of the bloodletting that went on within the nation.
