  1. I’m so glad he’s alright.

    I met Mr. Young and his wife back in 1977, or 1978 when I was a cameraman for WTPA-TV. I was covering the governor of PA, and Mr. Young and his wife were at the capitol with the governor.

    Mr. Young and his wife treated me royally, and it didn’t dawn on me until years later as to why?

    I was the product of all of their hard fought struggles… I was one of the few black television cameramen in the business. I began my TV career in 1976… Eight years after Dr. King’s assassination.

    Again, I’m so glad this brother is alright! As far as I’m concerned Andrew Young is a national treasure.

    They don’t make them like him anymore…

  2. Yes, Nicky Jackson, I’m glad he’s alright too! He was supposed to be on the plane that crashed a few months back that killed Pastor Myles Munroe & his wife in the Bahamas. Seems like he’s got angels watching over him…
