Letter to the Editor of the New York Times


On April 15, 1967, a massive antiwar demonstration was held in New York City. Demonstrators marched from Central Park to the United Nations building where they were addressed by prominent political activists such as Dr. King, Floyd McKissick, Stokely Carmichael, James Bevel, Jan Berry Crumb, and Dr. Benjamin Spock. In this letter, a veteran and demonstrator writes the Editor of the New York Times to express his critical view of an article that reported on the event. The sender claims that the report was incongruous with what actually happened and he corrects misrepresented details regarding the demographic and the "tenor of the speakers' comments."
