Johnson, Thomas A. "Few Blacks Among Peace Marchers in the Capital."
New York Times, November 16, 1969, p. 61.
This article attempts to explain why there was not a significant number of African-Americans at
an anti-war demonstration held at the nation's capitol, despite a large number of
African-American speakers at the event. Among the reasons given were lack of finances to make
the trip (or take the day off from work to attend), distrust of a white dominated movement,
distrust of nonviolence (?), and apathy.
