Dear Tom Mboya:

I am in receipt of your very kind letter of recent date thanking the leaders of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference for the dinner in your honor.
I should have written you before you wrote me to thank you for giving us the opportunity to honor ourselves in bringing you to Atlanta. Because of your distinguished career and dedicated work, the honor was ours and not yours. I will
long remember the moments that we spent together. I am sure that you could sense from the response that you gained all over the United States that your visit here made a tremendous impact on the life of our nation. Your sense of purpose,
your dedicated spirit, and your profound and eloquent statement of ideas all conjoin to make your contribution to our country one that will not soon be
forgotten.

Thank you for your very kind comments concerning my book, Stride Toward Freedom.* This book is simply my humble attempt to bring moral and ethical principles to bare on the difficult problem of racial injustice which confronts our nation.

I am happy to know that you found it helpful. I am absolutely convinced that there is no basic difference between colonialism and segregation. They are both based on a contempt for life, and a tragic doctrine of white supremacy. So our struggles are not only similar; they are in a real sense one.

I am happy to know that you will have a student enrolled in Tuskegee Institute in the next few months. I will be happy to make some move in the direction of assisting this student. Please give me some idea of the amount of money that he will need over and above the aid that he will get from Tuskegee Institute itself.’ Also
let me know whether the money should be sent directly to you or given to him in person.

Sincerely yours,
Martin L. King, Jr.
MLK:mlb

With warm personal regards, I am,
TLc. MLKP-MBU: Box 26.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself
    or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole
    my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and
    she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!
