Creator:DeLaine, Joseph A. (Joseph Armstrong), 1898-1974
Title:Letter, 1971 Nov. 2, (Charlotte, N.C.), Joseph A. DeLaine, Sr., to John Douglas Bright, (Philadelphia, P.A.)
Date:1971 Nov. 2

Letter from Joseph A. DeLaine, Sr. of Charlotte, North Carolina to John D. Bright, Bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church First Episcopal District in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, submitting his resignation as Pastor of Calvary A.M.E. Church in Brooklyn, New York. DeLaine requests a transfer to the Western North Carolina Church Conference. He also thanks Bright for his support, especially after the neglect of 1956 and 1957 when to me it seemed like the Church was carrying out the wishes of the White Citizens Council, specifically economic strangulation.
