Andrew Young: In a very strange way, it liberated his spirit from his body. At first I was angry, not at the people for killing him, but for him leaving us. Because he had a firm faith in life beyond this world. So he was not afraid of death. We used to think sometimes that, he was almost — knowing it was inevitable — but he’d say, “You don’t have anything. You’re going to die. Everybody’s going to die. You have no choice about where you die, how you die. Your only choice is what you die for.” And he had reached a point where he was determined to give his life for the poor. We had launched a poor people’s campaign to come to Washington. But on the way, sanitation workers in Memphis called him. And even though he was very, very busy — we were in New York and due in Washington the next day — that night, he told us about midnight, “Well, look, I’m going to get up and catch that six o’clock plane to Memphis.” I said, “What are you going there for? We’re in a poor people’s…” He said, “Yeah, but I can’t go to Washington and talk about poverty and leave the poorest of the poor down there alone.” And he said, “I’ll get there about nine o’clock, gain an hour. And I’ll still meet you all in Washington in time for the eight o’clock meeting Monday night.” So he said, “You all go on to Washington.” So he and Bernard Lee, his traveling companion, went on alone, and the march was, I think, deliberately disrupted by provocateurs. And it meant that we had to go back there to have another march. And that kind of set him up to be killed. But he did, he went, knowingly.
