Interview with Andrew Young
QUESTION 60
PAUL STECKLER:

Last question. We talked about this earlier. Did you in SCLC and Dr. King fear being tagged as militants yourselves?

ANDREW YOUNG:

I think that SCLC took seriously the charge of being Communist. We didn't mind being militant, but militantly non-violent. We didn't like the charge of being violent, and we didn't like the charge of being communist. Mainly, because it's legitimate to kill Communists. It's legitimate to kill people who are violent. And so we fought to maintain our non-violent integrity. But what other folk thought of us beyond that didn't really matter a great deal.

PAUL STECKLER:

Cut. Thank you very much.
