Barnes and... A Conversation With Ambassador Andrew Young


Ambassador Andrew Young talk about race and international relations of the past and present. Young served as a top aide to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement. He later became a member of the U.S. Congress, appointed U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and served as Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia. We met with Mr. Young at a conference, "Civil War to Civil Rights", sponsored by the Central High National Historic Site and the National Park Service in Little Rock.
