WDBJ Interview with Reverend Lawrence Campbell
(WDBJ Television, Roanoke, VA)

Reverend Lawrence Campbell saw no options but further demonstrations as long as the city refused to consider the Danville Christian Progressive Association's list of demands for desegregation. With little progress being made, Campbell affirmed that "we are going to continue" and he promised to work with non-violent methods to do so. The film showed wounded and bandaged demonstrators gathering at a church in Danville in preparation for further demonstrations.
