Interview with Hollis Watkins
QUESTION 9
INTERVIEWER:

UM, AND, AND MAYBE ALONG WITH THAT, UM, YOU CAN GIVE ME A, A BRIEFING ON WHY THE DIRECT ACTION WAS A HARD ONE TO SUSTAIN. SO LET'S BEGIN TALKING ABOUT THE TWO ARMS OF SNCC IN MACOMB AND KINDA HOW IT BRANCHED OUT.

Hollis Watkins:

Ok, yeah. In the Macomb area we had two arms or two divisions of SNCC. One worked on voter registration and the other one worked on direct action. It was much harder to sustain the arm that was working on direct action.
