This record is featured in “Voices from the Southern Civil Rights Movement.”

Description
Ronnie Moore, the chairman of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) chapter for Baton Rouge, discusses his arrest in December 1961 after participating in a Southern University student demonstration to protest segregation. At the time of this interview, Moore faced a sentence of 10 years in prison on a charge of criminal anarchy and attempting to overthrown the state of Louisiana. Moore discusses the racial situation in Baton Rouge, events leading up to his arrest, the reactions of the students, faculty, and the president of Southern University, an all-black college, his frustrations with liberals, and his belief in the principle of non-violence. COREs 1963 summer voter registration drive led by Moore was profiled in the National Educational Television documentary Louisiana Diary. For information on Ronnie Moore and the civil rights movement in Louisiana, see Adam Fairclough, Race & Democracy: The Civil Rights Struggle in Louisiana, 1915-1972 (Athens, GA: University of Georgia Press, 1995).
