TLANTA Civil rights activist Andrew Young is being transferred to a hospital in Atlanta after falling ill over the weekend while in Tennessee.

Youngs executive assistant, Patra Marsden, said in an email Wednesday that the 86-year-old Young was hospitalized Sunday. He was in Nashville at the time for the baccalaureate service at Fisk University.

Marsden said Young would move to Emory University Hospital on Wednesday or Thursday. Youngs daughter, Andrea Young, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution her father had a minor infection and ran a fever and is recovering well.

Young was a confidant of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and went on to become a congressman, United Nations ambassador, Atlanta mayor and international businessman.
