Green’s life changed on October 18, 1974, when Mary Woodson, a woman who had walked away from her family to be with Green, attacked him in his bathroom with a pan of boiling hot grits. Woodson then shot and killed herself in Green’s Memphis home. He later became a minister using the church and the stage to preach until his fans protested (and his funds started to dwindle), he limited his testifying to the pulpit.
