Title:Oral history interview with Herman G. Enochs

Oral history in which Herman Enochs describes the effects of mass arrests in spring 1963 on the local judicial system. He discusses efforts to speed the adjudication process, especially given overcrowded conditions at the polio hospital serving as a prison. He also notes tactics that hampered the process, including defendants' refusal to abstain from further protests until their cases were heard. The role of attorneys Clarence Malone, Floyd McKissick, Major High and Kenneth Lee, who represented the arrested demonstrators, is also discussed.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
