Description: This is a handwritten report from an individual who may have been connected in some way with the campus police at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro concerning activities surrounding the November 1-3, 1967 Black Power Forum. It mentions interactions with Ku Klux Klan member George Dorsett and a group of Klansmen outside Elliott Hall, and states that there will be extra security at the following day's events. It also mentions the arrest of Hilda Amroreaux, one of the panelists, for driving without a license, and that the courtroom is “filled with A&T students.” Also mentioned are pamphlets being handed out at the forum, containing material by Larry Neal, Marvin X, and Huey P. Newton. Copies of the pamphlets are attached to the report.
