Interview with Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth
QUESTION 48
INTERVIEWER:

YOU STARTED GIVING ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ANDY YOUNG. I WANT YOU TO GIVE ME JUST A BRIEF STATEMENT ABOUT ANDY YOUNG.

Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth:

Andy Young was the quote "liaison man" in any kind of a problem. He could almost be with every side in a struggle. I think he was, I'd classify him as a good person. I don't think at times that Andy Young was happy that I had the position I had, but I had the movement. But we never had clashes to the point that I had to just come down on him against him. I think Andy Young was one of, was one of the great people of our time. And you had to have people back there to talk with people who were mad as if he was mad, but he really wasn't mad. I call him the great conciliator and emolifyer. Dr. King needed him.
