Interview with Rev. Joseph Ellwanger
QUESTION 27
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT WAS YOUR FEELING DURING THIS TIME? HOW DID YOU GET TO THE POINT OF BEING AWAKENED AND ENLIGHTENED, ALL OF THAT?

Rev. Joseph Ellwanger:

Well, you wonder whether any really uh, radical change is ever going to take place, or whether it's going to be this slow metamorphosis uh, over long periods of time. Uh, and I guess this is why uh, the possibility of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the demonstrations uh, led by King uh, opened up uh, a great deal of hope to people who otherwise felt that a there's just never going to be any change made here for the next generation or two. It's just going to be a very very slow process.
