WE'RE GOING TO ALBANY NOW. WHAT WAS SCLC'S ROLE IN ALBANY?
Well, in Albany we were like firefighters. The fire was already burning and, I try to say this as charitably as I can, SNCC was in over its head. And they wanted the international and national attention that Martin Luther King's presence would generate, but they did not want the input of his organization**, nor his strategy altogether, which was considerably different from the methodology and strategy of SNCC.
