50th Anniversary Gathering

As a white veteran from Georgia (1960-1961) I saw no racial tensions at the SNCC conference in Raleigh. It was a warm and welcoming crowd of laid back whites, blacks and Asians from the 1960s. Yes, the Black Power issue was on the table and was thoroughly discussed without rancor and even humor. I remember in particular Jewish women remembering demonstrating at synagogues on High Holy Days in support of workers and tenants rights! Your correspondent seems to have missed the spirit of the gathering.
