This item has multiple creators.
This copy of a April 18, 1980 letter to Stephen Daily, mayor of Kokomo, Indiana, concerns an upcoming march of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in Kokomo. The letter warns that Kokomo officials will be "held resposnible" for any violence against foes of the KKK during the demonstration. The writers demand that the KKK's parade permit be revoked and that legal observers be allowed to attend the demonstrations. Copies of the letter were sent to various media organizations and to the U.S. Justice Department. The letter is signed by the widows of Communist Workers Party (CWP) members killed in the November 3, 1979, Death to the Klan march (also known as the Greensboro Massacre).
