Letter from John Brooks to MLK
Transcripts & Translations


Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr Ebenezer Baptist Church Atlanta, Georgia Dear Sir: We see grave implications in your speech of April 20, but, "Firm resoluteness is necessary in dealing with weeds" and we believe you are making matters known truthfully. Please accept the enclosed small contribution and may God give your strength to continue, and people the eyes and ears to see and hear. Faithfully yours, [Closing Signature: John Benson Brooks]
