1964 letter from CORE leaders suggesting punishment for Harlem CORE

Subject

harlem CORE

Description

This is a 1964 letter from former CORE national chairman, Charles Oldham, to James Farmer, CORE's National Director, suggesting Harlem CORE be penalized for its dissent in supporting Brooklyn CORE's Stall-In campaign at that year's World's Fair in Queens. Oldham essentially suggests in the letter that Harlem CORE be taken over if its members and leaders did not comply with the orders from the national office to not participate in the campaign. This would not be the first time the chapter rebelled against national orders, as was the case when they supported the 2nd school boycott (along with Brooklyn and Bronx CORE).
Charles Oldham was a long standing leader in CORE and former chairman St. Louis CORE.
