Description
In this recording, Ted Mascott speaks with Andrew Young of the SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference), who reports on his group's attempts to peacefully protest and march in St. Augustine, Florida on June 10, 1964. Despite judge-ordered protection by police, the group was nevertheless attacked by a group of white men. Young speaks about their plans to continue marching despite the violence and says that Martin Luther King Jr. will join them in the morning. The pair also speaks about hurt protesters and discusses the small group of white protesters who came from northern cities to support the organization. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) had been marching in St. Augustine for "full and equal justice in America's oldest city" regularly that June to protest segregation. Groups of white men often harassed the peaceful marchers and sometimes attacked them as they attempted to go home following a protest.
