NASHVILLE – (WAOK/AJC) – A lost taped interview with Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King,  Jr., that was recorded decades ago,  has been found in an attic in Chattanooga,  Tennessee.  Stephon Tull says he was cleaning out his father’s house,  when he stumbled upon a tape labeled Dr. King interview,  December 21,  1960.  He says the interview was conducted by his father,   for a book he was writing about his experience with racism,  but that his father never finished the book.   Experts have heard the tape and say it’s authentic.  He says on the tape,  King talks about his visit to Africa and the concerns about the non violence movement in America.   Tull says his father is now ill,  but he plans to sell the tape next week in a private sale in New York City.
