Description: This is an unsigned, uncredited pamphlet distributed at the controversial Black Power Forum held November 1-3, 1967 at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). The pamphlet calls for a national organization that addresses the growing militancy among young black people, and criticizes the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee as a “buffer zone” that does not speak in the “tone” of the community it purports to represent. There are also criticisms of racism in America and of the reluctance of white liberals to work within their communities.
