FREEDOM INDUSTRIES AND CARMICHAEL

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

May I state at the outset the appreciation of the Freedom Industries staff for the coverage we received in your paper regarding our efforts in Roxbury. Despite our efforts we have found few papers willing to give the extensive coverage which you have given us in this article.

Nevertheless, I feel that it is necessary to point out that the article's reference to my views in relationship to Stokely Carmichael are seriously misrepresented. I would like to say unequivocally that I am a strong admirer of Stokely Carmichael and I believe your reference to militant implies the constant negative reaction that the white society makes of most black men who speak a frank truth.

It is my hope that my efforts at Freedom Industries can add to, in some small way, the efforts of Stokely Carmichael and others who see the shocking truth and are working in the best way they know how to change the condition of the black man in America. Archie R. Williams   President, Freedom Industries, Inc.
