Interview with Stokley Carmichael
QUESTION 55
JUDY RICHARDSON:

STOKELY CARMICHAEL:

We expected the press to be completely against us, to use all sorts of terms but that was not our problem. King was on the march. And since King was on the march they could not attack the march without attacking King. And King could not leave the march. So their hands would be tied only to attack us, leave the march in place, and leave King out there to see how he would relate to it. King obviously could not attack us. And if you will look everywhere, King has never attacked Black power. He said, I wouldn't use the term, the connotation conjures.
