Hosting Dr. King

Janie Young Price

Janie Price grew up and came of age in segregated St. Augustine, FL. She met Dr. King when both were college students, and hosted him in her home when he came to St. Augustine. She recalled, "I asked him one time, I said, 'Dr. King, arent you afraid to do what you do ' and he said to me, he said, 'Ms. Price,' he said, 'You know Im like this. If its not worth dying for, its not worth doing.'"
