Interview with Dr. William Anderson
QUESTION 38
JAMES A. DEVINNEY:

AND WHAT DO YOU THINK WAS THE BOTTOM LINE AS FAR AS YOUR DECISION TO BRING IN DR. KING?

Dr. William G. Anderson:

It was probably the smartest thing that we ever did. Because by bringing in Dr. King not only did we get the benefit of having a well-established, well-experienced civil rights organization as a part of the Albany Movement, but it also brought in world attention. The eyes of the world were focused on Albany primarily because of Dr. King.
