"On the 4th of April Walter Fauntrroy and I were at by the Old People's drugstore at 14th and U we got the word that Dr. King had been assassinated. And Walter called down at Memphis to find out if that was true. We took about 20 minutes of crying and praying, crying and praying, crying and praying We saw the crowds gathering, we saw the molotov cocktails being made and thrown into the stores. We couldn't stop them."
