"Dr. King had courage. In those days it took courage for you to leave the comfort of your house, your wife and kids and go out into the community where you knew you were putting your life in danger. Courage is not something you see in everybody.He knew that he was living in danger everyday. We also knew we had to do this to achieve our objective. The objective was to say to this society we are full citizens who deserve our full citizenship rights."
