Letter to King Expressing Concerns About Communist Ties
Next entry

This letter sent to Dr. King by Al Misegadis, references an “article” that implies King is a Communist because of his involvement with Highlander Folk School. The letter criticizes King for “doing anything but carrying out the duties of a true Christian minister” and says that King has “already set back the brotherhood of man 200 years here in the U.S.A.” It implores King as a “militant leader of civil rights” to "stop look and listen” before he stirs up a fight causing the death of innocent people.
