Interview

I worked in Dallas County, Alabama with Jonn Love and Worth Long. It was in Jail in selma that we formed TIAL. This when I began to develop my organizational abilities.

There are Three esential things that the movement taught me that I use today.

  1. THE POWER OF COLLECTIVE ACTION

  2. LOOK AT EVERYBODY STRAIGHT ACROSS.DON'T LOOK UP TO NOBODY AND DON'T LOOK DOWN ON NOBODY

  3. I DO NOT ENTERTAIN HOW NOT OR WHY NOT ONLY HOW WE CAN.

The HORIZONTAL LEARNING that I got in the MOVEMENT (that education that I got from my fellow workers) was what started me learning how to learn. It was one the greatest if not the Greatest thing that happen to me.

I work with at risk youth that are caught up in the Juvinile Justice System. I am on the front line.
