Description
This is the eighth in a series of news broadcasts covering the struggle for civil rights in St. Augustine, Florida, during March and April 1964. T. F. Conley reports on an arrest earlier that day of his colleague Ted Mascott during a mass demonstration by high school students. An actuality recording is played of encounters the previous day at two motel dining rooms that refused service to an interracial group, which included Mary Peabody, the mother of the governor of Massachusetts, and Dr. Robert Hayling, a local dentist and leader of the movement in St. Augustine. Mrs. Peabody speaks with Mascott and Conley in an exclusive interview. The next day, Governor Endicott Peabody of Massachusetts answers questions at a press conference held after his mother is arrested. A Yale student is interviewed just after he was released from jail following an arrest after he refused to leave a pharmacy lunchroom where he and an interracial group were denied service. Mrs. Peabodys arrest drew international attention to the protests in St. Augustine. For information on the arrest of Mrs. Peabody, see Taylor Branch, Pillar of Fire: America in the King Years, 1963-65 (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1998), 277-83.
