Title

letter complaining of Malcolm X being at a Harlem CORE meeting, 1962

Subject

Malcolm X

Description

This is a letter from Harlem CORE member J.W. Franklin, Jr. (also known as "Buddy") to the CORE national office complaining about Malcolm X coming to speak at one of Harlem CORE's general meetings for members and the public. Franklin at the time was a member of Harlem CORE's Executive Committee and Chairman of the Finance Committee.

Malcolm X was invited to the meeting by fellow Executive Committee member Edward Mollette, a move 'endorsed' by Harlem CORE chairman Gladys Harrington.

The letter is part of a larger document, a letter of general complaint concerning the chapter. What is most interesting is that it is dated February of 1962. It demonstrates within the first few months of the chapter having moved to 125th street, Malcolm X made direct contact with Harlem CORE and apparently had a noticeable effect.
