Description
In this recording, Ted Mascott interviews Fred Martin, a civil rights supporter in St. Augustine, about his impressions of the march from that evening, June 10th, 1964, which again ended in violence. Marching to the Old Slave Market in the center of St. Augustine, protesters were attacked by white agitators who threw bricks and concrete from structures they had destroyed in the park at the marchers.

Groups of white men often harassed the peaceful marchers, and sometimes attacked them later as they attempted to go home following a protest.

The report also states that Martin Luther King Jr. will appeal to President Lyndon Joh
