«“I NEVER WILL FORGET” MEMORIES FROM MISSISSIPPI FREEDOM SUMMER For seven years, the University of Florida Samuel Proctor Oral History Program ...»

-- [ Page 13 ] --

Jennifer Buckner (68) Now I’m back from Vietnam, and the place that I work—I’ll never forget this—the first day back, I had to go back through orientation. They used to have a cigarette machine up on the second floor of this building, where I was in the orientation, and they ran out of cigarettes. During the break, I went downstairs and went across the street. There was a bar there, that’s quite far from the place where I worked. I went in and asked for a pack of cigarettes, and they told me to go to the back. This is 1973, man, you know. I got so mad, because I felt like I been halfway around the world fighting for so-called freedom and I can’t buy a pack of cigarettes right across the street from where I work. Of course, I refused to go around to the back and get them, too.

John Tubbs (10) “The zeal and strength of our endeavors must be superior to the difficulties to be surmounted. Discouragement should have no place where industry, persistency, and ingenuity or faith eternal may at last bring the required results.” That is a quotation by Charles Price Jones... the zeal, the inspiration- the fervor behind what I am trying to do must be superior above more than the difficulties that I will face in doing it. And discouragement should have no place where industry, persistency, integrity or faith eternal should bring lasting results. In other words, I am working towards these results that will be lasting, on-going, eternal and I can’t let the difficulties stop me from allowing that to happen.

I would get young people to read the literature and look at the tapes that SNCC had at its fiftieth anniversary. The best organizers in America is the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. I don't care what historian wants to take me on, on that [laughter]. But what we've got to do is get them to learn that ordinary people like them made this history. It wasn't geniuses and holy people and labor unions. They were ordinary—I mean, there's no better case than Sunflower County, where ordinary people did some astounding... the people in Sunflower County began a process that changed the world.
