In this recording, Fredrick Richardson is interviewed by John Beebee and Sheila Flanagan to discuss John LeFlore and the Civil Rights Movement in Mobile, Alabama. Mr. Richardson describes working with John LeFlore at the post office, and Mr. LeFlore’s activism both inside and outside of that space. He also discusses some of the political differences and points of agreement between himself and Mr. LeFlore, including his own personal choice not to work with the Non-Partisan Voters League, and Mr. LeFlore’s decision not to work with the NOW movement. He also describes the voting boycott that the NOW movement called for, which led to Joe Langan losing the Mobile mayoral election of 1969.
