Title:Letter, Kenneth L. Dean to Robert Nash; April 4, 1967

From the Johnston (Erle E., Jr.) Papers. Typewritten letter from Kenneth Dean to Robert Nash dated April 4, 1967, in which Dean voices his concerns about the continued racial violence and discrimination in Mississippi. Dean describes an incident in which an African-American man, Second Lieutenant in the Air Force, was severely beaten by a gang of white men in Jackson, Mississippi. When taken to the University Medical Center there, he was initially refused assistance, and finally given minimal treatment for his injuries.
