Abstract:

A flier, annotated as having been picked up Feb. 17, 1969, from the "University community" calls upon the Governor, Board of Visitors and University administration to consider "the affront to the black community posed by the presence on the Board of Visitors of representatives of the segregationist Massive Resistance movement," "the conspicuous absence of black Virginians on the Board of Visitors," and "the subsistence-level wages and general working conditions offered by the University to its non-academic employees, the ghetto slums provided by Charlottesville for its black citizens, and the consistent refusal of the official University to involve itself in the larger community."

A flier, written between April 4 and June 5, 1968, addressed to "white brothers and sisters" begins with a statement about the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the cruelty and danger of American racism and continues with statements concerning hypocritical politicians, repressive police officers, capitalist America, colonial exploitation of Asia and Latin America, Lyndon Johnson's refusal to implement recommendations of the Kerner Commission, hypocrisiy of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., black nationalism and self determination, justice, and support for liberation movements of oppressed peoples.
