Interview with Andrew Young
QUESTION 33
PAUL STECKLER:

Selma 1965. Describe your concerns when Malcolm X came to speak in Selma in February of '65.

ANDREW YOUNG:

Well, I knew Malcolm well and Malcolm quite often stopped by the SCLC headquarters, so my concerns were minimal. I think what we had to address was the concern that was being fostered by the press, and that was getting to the kids that Malcolm X was coming and the promise was that, or the threat that they were describing was that he would stir up sentiments of violence and make it difficult for us to control the movement.
