Interview with Rev. Joseph Ellwanger
QUESTION 19
INTERVIEWER:

OK, I WANT YOU TO PICK UP WHERE YOU WERE. YOU WERE TELLING ME THAT MARTIN LUTHER KING HAD CHANGED… HAD AN EFFECT ON YOU.

Rev. Joseph Ellwanger:

Yeah. Even though I had this commitment to justice, uh, I think the role that Martin Luther King played in my life and I, and he did this for many many others is that he helped raise that commitment to justice from a kind of intellectual level to an, an action level. And uh he freed, he helped to free many people to recognize that uh, a concern for something as big as justice must be more than just an intellectual commitment.
