Interview with Rev. Ralph Abernathy

The music and the spirituality of the Albany movement. We hear that there was, like, no other place, no other time during the movement. Is that true, can you describe a little bit of that for me?

Rev. Ralph Abernathy:

Well, I do not agree that the Albany movement had the greatest movement, greatest music. I think that the Birmingham Movement had the greatest music of all. We did develop a great singing group led on by one of the fine young women there, but it was good. It was moving, and it was most inspiring, but well, it was good.
