Creator:Madrid, Margaret
Title:Letter, Margaret Madrid to the Editor of the San Francisco Chronicle; July 18, 1964
Date:1964 July 18

From the Miller (Michael J.) Civil Rights Collection; Margaret Madrid's letter to the editor of the San Francisco Chronicle thanks the paper for publishing her daughter's letter from Mississippi, and begs them to include two paragraphs that they left out. The omitted paragraphs attest to numerous uninvestigated deaths of African Americans in the South and shows how attitudes of white supremacy and racial discrimination tainted politics and police procedure in the early 1960s.
