Peoples Temple Collection; Box 17, Virtual item 17, Q597 Part 2- Jones meeting (8 April 1978)
April 8, 1978

This tape was one of the 53 tapes initially withheld from public disclosure.

In this tape of a Jonestown community meeting of an unknown date, Jones reviews the various praises and criticisms of different residents. While the tone of the meeting becomes difficult and angry towards the end, most of it is joyous — with laughter, music, dancing, and forgiveness — even if that joy is expressed in irreverent ways.

Although the tape starts with ongoing conversation, it seems to be close to the beginning of the meeting. People seem to be settling into their seats, and there is light sexual banter before the business of the meeting gets underway.

Full summary of the recording available at Alternative Considerations of Jonestown website, along with the tape transcript.
