Circular letter from Martin Luther King, Jr. to W. E. B. Du Bois

@ University of Massachusetts, Amherst


From his cell at Fulton County Jail, warning recipients that "courage, determination, even willingness to risk death do not guarantee victory in this struggle"; "Funds are needed for legal defense"; informing the reader of recent efforts by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference to register voters in twelve souther cities and so urging them to contribute "as generously as you can."
