Interview with Sheyann Webb
QUESTION 12
INTERVIEWER:

IF THERE HAD NOT EVER BEEN A MOVEMENT IN SELMA, WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WOULD'VE BEEN LIKE NOW. WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD HAVE HAPPENED?

Sheyann Webb:

First of all, I think that uh, first of all I think that if there had not been a movement, a great movement like the civil rights taken place in Selma that a lot of us wouldn't be aware of a lot of the uh, voting rights, uh, we just wouldn't be aware of several things that that we had become aware of during that movement. And for one thing, if there hadn't been that movement, I probably wouldn't be where I am today. My train of thought would probably be way in far left lane because that that movement played a very important role in my life, up until this point. And uh, and I could say so many things for the great leader, Dr. Martin Luther King. If there hadn't been Dr. Martin Luther King where would we all be? Where, he, he just brought some initiative among black people as well as white all over the world, politically, uh, economically, and we're still trying to follow that path from which he has left. So, not only, you know, in Selma, but all over the world he has really enlightened uh, our minds and our goals, and uh, has given us some determination to be where we oughta be and to do what we need to do.
