As a boy, Andrew Young learned a vital lesson from his parents when a local chapter of the Nazi party instigated racial unrest in their hometown of New Orleans in the 1930s. Andrew's father told him that when dealing with the sickness of racism, "Don't get mad, get smart." To drive home the lesson, the family went to the local theater to see newsreels of Olympic track star Jesse Owens and how he competed in Nazi Germany with dignity.
