[Unknown Speaker 1]
Ok,

[00:37:00]
the next speaker, will be Mr. James Baldwin, who will be introduced to you by our executive

[00:37:09]
executive secretary Mr. James Foreman.

[00:37:13]
But, previous to this I would like to make a few announcements, which, have been handed to me.

[00:37:21]
Number one: those, who, at this time, do not have housing,

[00:37:27]
can go downstairs immediately after Mr. Baldwin speaks,

[00:37:32]
to secure housing.

[00:37:35]
And number two:

[00:37:37]
that, there is, a conference folder, belonging to Joyce Latina, which she has lost

[00:37:45]
and which contains something valuable in it, and would you please be honest, as we all know you are, and return them.

[00:37:53]
Also, I would like, for each and every one of us, to look at the

[00:37:59]

Mr. Baldwin was looking on at that particular time.

[00:38:41]
Also, [Aibree?] Williams, is he here?

[00:38:45]
Cause, in the midds of an intensive voting registration campaign,

[00:38:48]
in the face of two FBI, four FBI agents, two Justice Department officials,

[00:38:53]
these people were beaten by Sheriff County,

[00:38:56]
rather, the County of Dallas, Dallas County Sheriff Jim Clark.

[00:39:00]
Chico? And where's [Aibree?] Williams? Is he here?

[00:39:05]
I think it's important that we understand some of the difficulties that all the workers are going through.
