Transcripts & Translations


[Page 1] [Stamp in red ink: Received Nov[ember] 20, 1967] Dear Sir: I was very disappointed to read that you, Rev[erend] A[ndrew] Young, and Rev[erend] R[alph] Abernathy have de-cided to throw in with the New Politics grouop. From [MS:illegible] newspaper accounts of their Chicago meeting (one was in a Negro newspaper), it is obvious that their orzanization is purely racist. I can not support such an organization anymore than I can support the KKK [Ku Klux Klan] or the Birch Society or the American Nazi party. Nor can I continue to support you or any other ad-herent to such a divisive movement. Perhaps your aim has changed, certainly your means have, whether of your own initiative or via brainwashing I cannot tell. I only know that I am pained to witness your withdrawal from the ranks of men of good will, and must myself withdraw my small financial support of SCLC [Southern Christian Leadership Conference] and civil rights movement in general. Sincerely yours [Closing Signature: Georgia A. Miller] [Page 2] Rev[erened] M[artin] L[uther] King Jr. Southern Christian Leadership Conference Atlanta,GA 30304
