Jackson, Mississippi, May 22-25, 2011
Dr. King held another planning meeting at which we developed a new strategy. We saw that authorities in Jackson, Mississippi were intent on arresting all Freedom Riders who integrated the bus stations. Our new plan called for refusing bail, and filling the jails with Freedom Riders. Following our arrest, we would have 40 days in which to enter plea. We would stay in jail those 40 days and then bail out.
