Interview with Rev. Andrew Young
QUESTION 64
INTERVIEWER:

(BACKGROUND CONVERSATION] TONE THE QUESTION IS—TALK TO KELLY IF YOU WOULD—PART OF A MOMENT AND NOT JUST AN INDIVIDUAL?

Rev. Andrew Young:

I didn't know what my role would be. I really wanted to write. Ah, and I thought that by writing and recalling this history, I understood that this was something that was going to change America. I really thought it would fail. I mean my background is theology, and theological movements have a way of failing K. and then people understanding what they're all about ten, fifteen years later. This one was fortunate enough to have succeeded in our lifetime, far beyond our imagination.
