Interview with Sheyann Webb
QUESTION 11
INTERVIEWER:

EVEN THOUGH YOU DIDN'T MARCH THE WHOLE WAY TO MONTGOMERY, YOU WERE THERE AT THE STEPS AT THE END OF THE MARCH, THE FINAL SPEECH DR. KING MADE. HOW DID YOU FEEL THEN WHEN ALL THOSE PEOPLE, 25,000 PEOPLE, HAVING MADE IT ALL THE WAY?

Sheyann Webb:

I felt real good simply because, I saw—. I felt real good at the last march at the point where, it was like we had overcome. We had reached the point at which we were fighting for, for a long time. And if you were to just stand there in the midst of thousands and thousands of people and all of the great leaders and, and political people who had come from all over the world. It was uh, it was just a thrill. And I think, even you know, at the time, even though I didn't get the opportunity to stay during the whole rally, uh, just the idea of me having the opportunity to be there, you know, it proved that I had reached you know, my point, even thought I didn't have, you know, permission to do none of these things, as I, you know, talked about over and over again. But it was, it was a, a, great, you know, time.
