QUESTION 24
SUSAN J. LEVENE:

Do you remember any evictions?

EVELYN SMITH MUNRO:

Oh yes. I certainly remember the evictions. In fact I had visited with Norman Thomas one man who was evicted from the plantation. He was one of many, I think his name was Benny Fleming, who was living on the roadside. He was actually the germ in a way for what later grew into the Delta Cooperative Farm in Mississippi, because another person who heard about the plight of the sharecropper was Dr. Sherwood Eddy, who was an important minister and leader of a church group who sent another young minister down to stay overnight in this tent colony with Benny Fleming and later raised money to start a farm of black and white sharecroppers.

SUSAN J. LEVENE:

Great.
