Interview with Samuel Tucker
(WDBJ Television, Roanoke, VA)

Samuel Tucker argued that the hearings of the investigatory committee on the activities of the NAACP harrassed the organization and frightened potential black plaintiffs in future school desegregation cases. Tucker was referring to the committee headed by Delegate James Thomson, Alexandria, charged with gathering testimony on the NAACP and suggested that only the blind would not be able to see the committees actions as a plain attempt to disrupt the organization and prevent school integration.
