Discusses his many arrests on trumped-up charges due to his civil rights activities. Recalls the work of Bob Moses and the Council of Federated Organizations (COFO) in bringing white college students to Mississippi during the Freedom Summer. Reflects on the circumstances leading to the murders of Goodman, Schwerner, and Chaney. Cites the reasons behind COFO's creation and demise after the NAACP pulled out of Mississippi due to the excessive expenses of mounting a civil rights offensive in that state. Describes his campaign for Mississippi governor as part of the Freedom Vote project of 1963 as more a bid to increase Black voter registration than a serious effort to unseat the incumbent politicians. Comments on the activities and role of his white running mate for lieutenant governor, Rev. Edwin King. Discusses national Democratic Party politics and the presidential campaign of 1964. Expounds on the idea of a biracial, integrated society. No tape available. Interviewer: Robert Wright
