It was a true honor to have civil rights icon Andrew Young on the show. Our conversation spans from Andrew Young’s early childhood to his appointment as United States Ambassador to the United Nations by Jimmy Carter. Young discusses growing up in a diverse New Orleans neighborhood in a middle class family, how he became a close friend and confident of Martin Luther King, Jr, witnessing his friend’s assassination, and his enduring commitment to non-violence.
Young was the first African American US Congressman from the deep south since reconstruction and served as Mayor of Atlanta during the 1980s. He’s lead an absolutely remarkable life. Prepare to be inspired.
