Interview with Laurie Pritchett
QUESTION 12
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT WAS YOUR ASSESSMENT OF KING AND THE SCLC BY THE TIME THEY LEFT ALBANY?

Chief Laurie Pritchett:

Well, as I stated before, Dr. King, in some of our discussions - I, I felt that he was a very sincere person, who was trying to reach uh, a goal. Uh, as I stated before, the only difference was he did it in the streets and I thought it should be done in the courts. He stated courts were slow, streets were better, faster. Uh, I think he was a man that was devoted to his cause, and the cause of the black - uh, I respected him for that, I think he was uh, uh, in my opinion, a great man.
