"In a nearby church about an hour after being tear gassed, Dr. King had never seemed so angry. I was sitting on the edge of the platform where he stood and he leaned down and said to me, 'It’s really terrible being black in this country.' He gave a spirited speech to the marchers who were angry at what had happened to them."
