Dr. William Bronston: He was a great, great natural leader. He came from such a loving place

I mean, the way that Lee grew up. You know, he doesn't realize yet fully what his dad instilled in him. He will, next 10, 20 years as he gets older and older, he'll begin to see in real life what he carries with him that is just part of his assumptions that make him a change agent, just by virtue of his energy, and his love, and his personality, because it's embedded in his DNA.

You don't find a lover like this often and that level of passion and conviction and joy and respect. He respected people.

Human beings come in extremely different packages. I mean extremely different packages. And we don't get it because the system is set up to make sure they don't show up. And that was absolutely not gonna be tolerable in his watch, during his regime, and even afterwards.
