Letter to MLK from Cydrisse Crafton
Transcripts & Translations


Dear Martin Luther King Jr, My name is Cydrisse Crafton. I go to Dusable U.G.C. One day I heard on the radio should you go on another march. I think you shouldn't go on another march. Because you are going on a march became you wanted to live in a white neighborhood, because negroes like to tear things, especially when they [are] drunk. And white people keep their neighborhood clean. Well some of them. So I must close and decide to give my opinion. Yours truly, Cydrisse Crafton
