COMMITTEE (SNCC) J STOKELY CARMICHAEL 
100-439290 ' - 


SNCC have made or are in the process of making plans to attempt 
to go to North Vietnam and/or attend the "war crimes tribunal." 

All pertinent information relative to the participation of 
Carmichael and SNCC concerning this matter should be immediately 
submitted to the Bureau. 

With respect to possible travel to North Vietnam, 
it should be noted that such trr.vol could possibly be in 
violation of Section 1185(b), Title 8, U. S. Code, if such 
travel is not specifically authorized by the Department of State . 

:3a the event Information is developed that Carmichael and other 
members of SNCC are engaging in such travel without State 
Department permission, competent evidence to prove the violation 
must be developed. 

In this regard, WFO is instructed to immediately contact 
the Department of State to determine if Carmichael is in possession 
of a valid passport and, if so, whether it is specifically 
stamped not valid for travel to North Vietnam. WFG is further 
instructed to alert the Department of State to the above news 
release which indicates Carmichael and possibly other members of 
SNCC may endeavor to travel to North Vietnam. 

Atlanta and Now York are instructed that upon 
determining the identity of any member of SNCC who will participate 
in the travel to North Vietnam, to submit their names by expeditious 
cleans to the Bureau and WFO for similiar check of their passport 
records. 

The above should be afforded immediate, thorough and 
continuous investigative attention. .

the back seat of the vehicle were two loaded weapons - a 
thirty-two caliber automatic and a thirty-eight caliber short 
revolver. Also found in the vehicle were large quantities of 
Student Nonviolent Coordinating* Committee literature. 

All these individuals advised the Demopolis 
Police Department they had worked with the Student Nonviolent 
Coordinating Committee in the past, but were unwilling to 
furnish any additional information. 

It was subsequently determined that the vehicle 
in the possession of these individuals was registered to 
Sojourner Motor Fleet, 303 Spring Street, Atlanta, Georgia. 

The Sojourner Motor Fleet is a Student Nonviolent Coordinating 
Committee organization utilized in registering automobiles 
of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee workers. 

Black Panther Party, New York City 

A confidential source advised that Max Stanford, 
Field Secretary for the Revolutionary Action Movement, had 
recently been in contact with Stokely Carmichael concerning 
the formation of a Black Panther Party in New York City. 
Carmichael offered to help Stanford with any assistance he 
may need to organize a Black Panther Party in New York City. 

It is noted Carmichael previously established a Black Panther 
Party in Lowndes County, Alabama, for the purpose of bringing 
Negroes together as an independent political bloc. 

The Revolutionary Action Movement is an all-Negro 
Marxist-Leninist oriented organization which follows the 
Chinese Communist line and advocates achieving Negro rights 
by violence, if necessary.

There is set forth below a summary of current 
activity of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee 
)/ and its leader, Stokely Carmichael. 

Possible Resignation of Stokely Carmichael from the Student 
Nonviolent Coordinating Committee' 

• According to a confidential source, it is rumored 

that as a result of criticism directed at Stokely Carmichael 
in a recent staff meeting of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating 
Committee, Carmichael has submitted a letter of resignation to 
the Central Committee of this organization to become effective 
October 21, 1966, According to the source, the Central Committee 
is holding Carmichael accountable for the current financial 
trouble of the organization, claiming it is due to the manner 
in which Carmichael has handled public announcements and 
policies of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee 
since he has become its leader. The source further related 
that although the Central Committee has Carmichael s letter of 
resignation, it has made no decision as to whether or not it 
will be accepted.

Memorandum to Mr. Wick 

Re: Meet the Press, Channel 4 TV 


Meredith claimed that Negroes have never engaged in 
•violence although the white people did. He said that jf the whi e 
neonle would not remove the killers of the Negroes, then the blacK 
-oeople "do so. He said he knew and the white P^P 1 ® 

'the killers of the Negroes were but since the whites * j^e whttes 
thino- the Negroes should arm themselves and do the job the wnnes 
; re fus’ed to do? Stokley Carmichael agreed with Meredith, stating th 
' the Negro while accounting for 10% of the population, was so located 
in^ cfties throughout the country that if the 180 million white people 
\ hinie^ontheNegro, all would go down together. He noted the Army 
\vas integrated and that 40% of the Army in Vietnam was Negro and 
Tev would not permit the whites to attack Negroes without retaliating. 

* Ro y Wilkins said Carmichael abounds in the provocative statemen. an 
: fhat no Se believes the Negro would take up arms, ^rmichael noted 
; that students’ Nonviolent Coordinating Committee would attend the Wa 
\ Tr^un^trial of President Johnson called for by Sir Bertrand Russell. 
| “clel saW he would like to attend the trial as he felt the Vietnam 

1 War was immoral. 

v 

RECOMMENDATION : 

This memorandum be brought to the attention of the 
Domestic Intelligence Division in view of Carmichael’s seditious 
remarks.

"War Crimes Tribunal.” Paris, France, No vember, 1966 

A spokesman for the Bertrand Russell Peace 
Foundation, London, England, announced that Bertrand Russe 
ni*»ns to hold a **war crimes tribunal" in Paris, in 
November, 1966, to "indict" President Johnson "and J 1 *®* „ 

war criminals responsible for American atrocities in Vietnam. 

According to the spokesman, members of the Student 
Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, under the leadership of 

Carmichael, will go to North Vietnam as part of the 
international investigating committee to. gather evidence 
for presentation to the "tribunal." It is not known how 
many P Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee “embers „ 

will go to North Vietnam. However, in joining the tribunal, 
Carmichael allegedly stressed that the Student Nonviolent 
Coordinating Committee itself was endorsing the trial and 
said discussions are underway in the United States and 
elsewhere to mobilize support, funds and a world-wide ^ 
petition calling for the indictment of war criminals. 

Meeting with Leader of the Nat ion of Islam

in Atlanta, Georgia, will be invited to the Nation of Islam 
JSliJ to b4 held on August 28, 1966, at the mternational 
Amnhi theater. Chicago, Illinois. Elijah Muhammad, leader of 
the Nation of Islam, has approved extending this invitation 
toCarmichael . * The Nat ion of Islam is an all-Negro semi- 
religious organization which advocates a doctrine of violent 
hatred of the United States Government and the white race.

civil rights leaders for the purpose of calling a summit 
rrmfprence " The response of the various civil rights leaders 
to Muhammad* s invitation was completely negative with the
