Interview with Andrew Young
QUESTION 54
PAUL STECKLER:

The marches continued and they continued and finally the city has called for a summit meeting. What pressure was SCLC under to settle? Did you need to find some kind of victory? Were you working for someway out eventually?

ANDREW YOUNG:

Well, I think we realized that when we went to Chicago were trying to see, "Would non-violence work in the North, and what elements of non-violence would work?" Voter registration, marches, and direct action. Could we end slums and create good housing? Could we create jobs and educational opportunities?"** And all of those, oh, and, and could we build affordable housing for poor people as homeowners? Excuse me. Sorry, I'm okay.

PAUL STECKLER:

Could we cut for a second?
