Interview with Marian Wright Edelman
QUESTION 44
HENRY HAMPTON:

Just that kids today now say--

MARIAN WRIGHT EDELMAN:

It never occurred to me.

HENRY HAMPTON:

--they did it back then and I couldn't do that. I'm just trying to get a sense of how you did it, how you got a senator to pay attention, how you got the country to.

MARIAN WRIGHT EDELMAN:

In ordinary ways, you just, each of us can make a difference by just simply seeing a need, trying to figure out how you respond to that need. I always used to do my homework carefully. But you know, and I would follow up and never give up. I mean, getting things done, ah, is something that any person can do. If they simply believe in something deeply. Hang in there.
