Interview with Geraldine Williams
QUESTION 23
LOUIS MASSIAH:

Did you see a specific connection with this, with this campaign with the Civil Rights Movement and, yeah?

GERALDINE WILLIAMS:

Yes, definitely there was a connection with the Civil Rights Movement. We got Blacks to register, to vote, to take a part in government, we convinced them that if you don't speak out and ask the things, you're never going to get 'em. You can't just sit there. Well I think we, we taught them that their vote does mean something, that it counts, and the fact proof of it, you put a Stokes name on the ballot 20 years later, you don't have to do a thing but put the name out there, and they will go out and vote Stokes. That's one lesson we taught 'em.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

A--

GERALDINE WILLIAMS:

And other Black candidates too.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Okay, stop camera.
