Andrew Young has been many things, from Ambassador to the United Nations to U.S. Congressman to Mayor of Atlanta. But in terms of passion and intensity of purpose, nothing compares to the years he spent working alongside the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to "redeem the soul of America" in the cause of civil rights during the 1960s.
In Andrew Young: A Conversation, Georgia Public Broadcasting Senior Correspondent Susan Hoffman talks with Young about the lasting impact of the civil rights movement on America. He also shares intimate moments with King, including the fact that Young was actually afraid to get close to King because "he was such an awesome character. I mean, he really felt that the destiny of the world was on his shoulders."
