Date:1966 Sept. 26

From the Dahl (Kathleen) Freedom Summer Collection. Four-page letter written by Rita Walker to Kathleen Dahl. Walker writes about organizational problems with, presumably, individuals from the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in Atlanta, including someone she names "Mr. Black Power" who wants to close down the Holly Springs Project. She also touches on boycott successes in Holly Springs and the pessimism of some African Americans towards efforts to integrate local schools and medical facilities.
