Letter from Violet Panzram to MLK
Thursday, April 20, 1967
Transcripts & Translations


April 20, 1967 Dear Dr. King, You have been in our "Hall of Fame" [Inserted Text: (FOURTH GRADE)] for many years but never have I held you in as high esteem as since your strong statements against the war in VietNam. Robert Bly and Galway Kinnnel, poets presented slides of children of VietNam on whom napalm has been used. How cruel and inhumane! [Page #2] Please use this sum for your peace efforts. I pray for you daily. Sincerely, Violet Panzram
