Title:WSB-TV newsfilm clip of an unidentified African American man interviewed about boycott tactics borrowed from the Albany Movement, 1962 August 5
Date:1962 Aug. 5
Description:

In this WSB newsfilm clip, an unidentified African American man is interviewed by a white reporter on August 5, 1962, and describes how he plans to use boycott tactics used by the Albany Movement leaders. These plans for his city include public attention for those who do not follow the boycott. To encourage citizens to follow the boycott organized by local leaders, photographs of those not following the boycott were taken and displayed to the public. A similar public display was arranged for leaders who compromised the movement's position by accepting concessions made by community leaders.
