Interview with James E. Smith
QUESTION 7
PAUL STECKLER:

Pick up with, with that night whenever you are ready.

JAMES E. SMITH:

There was an overcoming spirit in Mason Temple that night. We knew that we were going to win. Dr. Abernathy spoke well. But we were waiting for Dr. King. And because he was in town there was an overcoming mood, an overcoming spirit in that place. And when Dr. King spoke that night we knew that we were going to win. And there was something about Dr. King. A man who could walk with kings but he was just as simple when he spoke that all of us understood him. Never met a man like that before.

PAUL STECKLER:

That's great. That's it.
