CAPS = BAD EYES. SORRY. I'M SURPRISED NO ONE ELSE WAS COVERING THE ANTI WAR MOVEMENT IN '67. IN CHAPEL HILL, NC, MY BROTHER WAS AMONG THOSE FASTING. THERE WAS A SILENT VIGIL ON FRANKLIN ST. ALL THIS AFTER WHITE SOUTHERNERS FROM EVERY SINGLE SOUTHERN STATE, YES, ALABAMA AND MISSISSIPPI, TOOK PART IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT IN CHAPEL HILL. WHERE WE SAT IN AT THE MAIN CROSSROADS, A QUARTER IS NOW MLK BLVD. NOT IN MIDTOWN MANHATTAN. TWO BOOKS TO READ: "THE FREE MEN" BY JOHN EHLE, STILL ALIVE. AND I'LL GIVE YOU MY NUMBER IF YOU CALL ME AT 212 580-7O96. THE OTHER IS NEW: "LIBERATION IN BLACK AND WHITE: southern student activism in the 1960s". BY A PROF AT NYU AND ANOTHER FROM USC - SOUTH CAROLINA. THE THESIS IS WE WERE AHEAD OF THE MOVEMENT IN THE NORTH. MY HIGH SCHOOL WHICH I LEFT A YEAR EARLY, I THOUGHT WOULD BE EASILY INTEGRATED BUT THE ONE AFRICAN AMERICAN, THEN NEGRO, YOUNG WOMAN WHO CAME WAS HECKLED. TWO PEOPLE I LIKED, AMONG ALL THE OTHERS, HELD HER HAND AND SAT WITH HER ALONE IN THE CAFETERIA. I WAS APPALLED TO HEAR THAT. TO GET A LOOK AT NC NOW GOOGLE:
youtube/democracynow/reverendbarber/moralmondays . I DIDN'T FEEL EVERYONE WAS A BIGOT. I MARCHED, PICKETED, BUT DIDN'T SIT IN BECAUSE THE COPS HAD MY FINGERPRINTS FOR STEALING BOOZE. WHEN I PICKETED A SEGREGATED MOTEL ALONE, AND WAS CURSED, SPAT AT, AND THINGS THROWN AT ME, IT FELT GREAT TO DO THE RIGHT THING. WAYNE KING, WHO WAS EDITOR OF THE DAILY TAR HEEL, WROTE THE BEST COVERAGE OF THE MOVEMENT. HE'S STILL ALIVE AS WELL. USED TO WORK FOR THE NY TIMES BUT MOVED BACK TO N.C.

RACISM IS STILL A TERRIBLE SCOURGE ON THE WHOLE COUNTRY. ROSA PARKS.IN A BIOGRAPHY IS QUOTED AS SAYING, "I LEFT THE JIM CROW SOUTH FOR THE JIM CROW NORTH." WE NEED ANOTHER MOVEMENT FOR ECONOMIC EQUALITY. BREAKS MY HEART.

THANKS FOR YOUR SHOW.
