Interview with James Forman
QUESTION 23
INTERVIEWER:

LET ME ASK YOU HOW YOU FELT ABOUT KING'S AND HIS LEADERSHIP AFTER THAT?

James Forman:

Well, I mean I have a lot of respect for Dr. King, OK, and I even have a great deal, I have more respect you know now that you know he's one of the long lines of assassinated black leaders, and that I always had respect for him during the course of the struggle. We had differences, but we constantly worked those out, and we had a lot a lot of differences, but we attempted to constantly talk to him and you know most of the, the negotiations and discussions with Dr. King and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee are not recorded and you know and they've never been basically revealed. But we didn't agree you know, with the uh uh certain things about the Selma march. But I said we had a meeting with him from 11 o'clock at night to 5 o'clock in the morning. You know, trying to lay out the benefits of continuing with the march on that turnaround Tuesday.
