Peoples Temple Collection; Box 17, Virtual item 16, Q596a Part 2- Meeting after accreditation of Jonestown school (March 1978)
March 1978

This tape was transcribed by Jeff Brailey. The editors gratefully acknowledge his invaluable assistance.

This tape is of a nighttime meeting in Jonestown, on March 8, 1978 (the date that the Guyana government accredited the Jonestown school, according to Raven, by Tim Reiterman and John Jacobs, p. 417). Many of the aspects are typical of such meetings – people report on the news they’ve heard through Jones, Jones offers corrections and a pro-Soviet editorial spin, Jones complains about the complaints he hears, and people remind each other how miserable conditions were and are in the US – but there are singular events as well.

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