Abstract: From the video archives of the Cornell Law School Heritage Project. The interviewer is Alfred C. Aman; the videographer, Thomas R. Bruce. This video covers Judge Motley's further reflections on the Meredith case, the relationship of Black subjugation in Mississippi to the decade of Black rule during Reconstruction, and the physical risk to those involved with civil rights causes in the state. (Duration 19:04) The initial phase of this project was sponsored by a generous grant from the law firm of Sutherland Asbill and Brennan LLP.
