Description: This November 17, 1967, clipping of two letters to the editor of the Greensboro Daily News and an editorial from The Carolinian demonstrates community reaction to the controversial Black Power Forum held November 1-3, 1967, at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). A letter by William Burris criticizes Lt. Governor Robert Scott's negative comments about the forum. Another by Ginger Grier cites the attached article from The Carolinian, UNCG's student newspaper, as an effective response to the controversy. The editorial itself criticizes coverage of the event by the Daily News and other commercial media.
