To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

Tony Hill notes in his review of the current issue of the Harvard Journal of Afro-American Affairs that its goals is to offer "compassionate yet critical reflection" on Negro issues; but having read the issue I fear it contains more compassion than criticism. So did, alas, Tony Hill's review, which is a pity because he is one of the CRIMSON's better writers and critical minds.

I might add that I think Tony Hill got the identity of "A. R.". author of one of the better articles in the current issue of HJAA, all wrong. Instead of being "a black writer living outside of the country," he inhabits a somewhat less exalted state than that: a graduate student in our midst.
