CARMICHAEL was elected National Chairman pi . 

Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee at a cQnfere? 
of the Central Committee of SNGC which was held in White 
Bluff, Tenn., in May, 1966. 

CARMICHAEL is reported to have been responsible 

fee ip&js&rsr 

Press . " 

at a Bronx° D New 2 York,Tig^^choo!^^Bef^!S55!TcHAEL attended, 
said that CARMICHAEL was included in a group who were usually 
devoted to "left wing” activities, ^hese. teachers als o. 

advised that CARMICHAEL^ — 

of the former general secretary of the Communis' 

Party, USA. 

A letter issued by the Emergency Civil Liberties 
Committee dated June, 1966, identified CARMICHAEL as having 
been elected to the National Council of that Committee. The 
Emergency Civil Liberties Committee is ref erred to in the 
12/1/61 issue of the ’‘Guide to Subversive Organizations and 

Publications.” 

On 8/2/66 CARMICHAEL interjected ’’Black Power” 
slogan into a spontaneous demonstration at a traffic incident 
and gave an impromptu speech advocating Black Power, the 
effects of which excited the crowd to a point of bordering 

on riot. 

CARMICHAEL has consistently spoken against the United 
[states intervention in Vietnam and in a press conference held 
En miaSeSwa on 8/30/66 saidu ttat . "our own friend? are those 
Working to destroy western civilization We ye got to bring 
Western Civilization down to its' knees.” • /' 





*■■■£> • 





%■ i 



On 9/6/66 a suspected Negro car thief was sh ot 
by a white detective on the Atlanta Police Department . 
CARMICHAEL reportedly appeared in the community later 
after this incident and made statements that resulted in 
two days of racial unrest in Atlanta. As a result of 
CARMICHAEL'S participation in these activities, he was 
indicted on 9/13/66 by a Fulton County, Ga., Grand Jury 
on a charge of inciting to riot. He is presently out on 
$1,000 bail.

Dear Mr. Hoover,

Carmichae l,

as the means - 
stand it, the 


'i 


Today I find myself puzzled because I CSnn6t answer a 
question that keeps coming to my mind. Since your department is con- 
cerned with such matters as the situation which provokes Ine question, 

I would be very grateful if you could give me a satis£actory<$logical. 
answer. , .■'.■■■ > A At ’ '*' i ' 

U 

It is my understanding that Mr. Stoklej 
the head of the Student Non-violent Co-ordinating 
a citizen of the United States. I do not need to elabora 
zation’s policies or strategies for T know that you mus 
with them. Mr. Carmichael advocates murder and ri<5 
/ of establishing "black power" which means, as I under 
! elimination of "whites. " We both know that to eliminate something is 
to get rid of it, to remove it, to do away with it. To eliminate the * v 
white element of our country would be to get rid of practically the whole 
population. Wherever Stokley Carmichael goes there is rioting, violence, 
and murder, so there is plenty of action accompanying his talk. I 
believe that Stokley Carmichael and his organization are threats to our -a 
national security. I majored in political science in college, and his 
strategy typifies what communists do or at least what communists use 
to their advantage. In my opinion this man in dangerous. 

ji My question, Mr. Hoover, is two-fold. In light of 

I this situation, does the FBI consider Stokely Carmichael a threat to 
h the security of the United States. If so, why has he not been deported? “

Due to the interest of the President in the 
activities of Stokely Carmichael and his organization; 
we have prepared a summary setting forth the current activity 
in unis matter. A copy of the summary is attached for 
ready reference. 

On 2/8/66 , Stokely Carmichael and other members 
of the Student Hoax'iolent Coordinating Committee were 
arrested by the Atlanta Police Department on charges of 
inciting to riot and disorderly conduct in connection v/ith' 
the recent racial strife in Atlanta. A confidential source 
advised Martin Luther King, Jr., President of the Southern 
Christian .Leadership Conference, ccnferrci with his principal 
advisor, Stanley Levison, a long-time secret member of the 
Communist : Party, USA, as to how he would handle press 
inquiries concerning Carmichael’s arrest. King felt ^he 
could give a general statement regarding Carmichael for 
the present, but eventually Carmichael would be calling on < 
King for support. 

' • • . 

In a subsequent press release, it was reported., 
that King at a news conference on 2/11/66, at Montclair, 

9 New Jersey, issued' a statement concerning Carmichael’s 
arrest which was substantially the same as previously 
— agreed to by King and Lsvison. 

On 9/13/66, the Pulton County Grand Jury, 

!■*•> Atlanta, Georgia, indicted Stokely Carmichael and five 

other members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee 
on a charge of disorderly conduct-riot • Bond was set at 
$1,000.

During the recent racial disturbance in Atlanta, 

/ "residents of the Vine City community of Atlanta distributed 
a petition protesting the activities of the Student Non- 
violent Coord:... „iiug Committee in the Vine City area and • 
ca_Iing for ule closing of the Student NqnviQl.en.t_. Coordinating

b^ the Atlanta Police Department on September 8, 1966, * * * 

on charges of inciting to riot .and disorderly conduct in 
connection with the recent racial strife in Atlanta. 

A confidential source advised that shortly after the arrest 
of Carmichael, Martin Luther King, Jr., President of the 
Southern Christian Leadership Conference, conferred with - 
his principal advisor, Stanley Levison, stated that • 

if he is asked by reporters regarding Carmicaael, he - ;5 y 

would only state that in line with American tradition * ’ . . ^ 

of jurisprudence, a man is innocent until proven guilty* 

ICing added he would say, in effect, that the matter is 
presently in the courts, and he does not have anything 
to do with it. King- felt he could give a general state- 
jaezrfc regarding Cariaich&el tii© present, but eventually ' • 
Carmichael would be calling on King for support. 


Levison and King agreed that if Carmichael 
is convicted of the “inciting to riot" charge J'they" 
will have to blame those forces which compelled him AA 

to riot. "The source advised King and Levison did "not * * - * . 
elaborate regarding the term “forces" but believed: they ..A JAL!- 
were referring to the Negro struggle in civil rights* . • • i\.vf 1

Petition Against the Student Nonviolent Coordinating 
Committee v. • 



During the recent racial disturbance in 
Atlanta, Georgia, residents of the Vine City community • 
of Atlanta distributed a petition protesting the activities 
of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in the 
Vine City area. The petition stated in part: "We, the 

residents of the Vine City community are shocked and 
completely deplore the events that have taken place in 
our city this ■week. We have every reason to believe 
that the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) 
created the incident to promote its doctrine of racial • 
hatred and separation, better known as ’Black Power.’’ 

We deplore such a doctrine as being opposed to true 
Americanism and opposed to our real ambitions of being 
a total part of the Atlanta community. Because we feel 
so strongly that the purposes of SNCC are not for the 
growth and development of our community, we forthwith 
call for them to cease their operation in this* area. 

More specifically., we call for the closing of their 
Vine City headquarters, the distribution of hate literature 
to be discontinued, and tbeir staff workers to withdraw 
completely from the area.”

of whom are members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating

A confidential source advised that William Epton, 

Vice President of the Progressive Labor Party, was in contact 
with Ivanhoe Donaldson, Director of the New York Office of 
the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, on September 12, 
1966. At the request of Donaldson, Epton agreed he would try 
to have some people send telegrams to Ivan Allen, Mayor of

Stokely Carmichael by the Atlanta Police Department on 
September 8, ,1966. The Progressive Labor Party is a pro-

Conference and the btudent Nonviolent coordinating Committee 

A confidential source advised that a meeting of the 
executive staff of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference 
was held at Atlanta, Georgia, on September 12, 1966. At this 
meeting, Martin Luther King, Jr., President of the Southern 
Christian Leadership Conference, stated that he was in favor 
of "black power" only in the sense that the economic, social 
and political position of Negroes must be improved. Within 
the confines of this qualification. King stated he, therefore, 
personally agreed with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating 
Committee and Stokely Carmichael. However, he could not at 
all countenance the current violent approach resorted to by 
the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and Carmichael 
in the recent Atlanta demonstrations. . ■

ti-U. 



King pointed out that the present racial climate in 
Atlanta was not conducive to any constructive nonviolent 
activity, particularly because the tones of violence injected 
to date by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee would 
cloud any issues selected. King was reluctant to personally 
assume leadership or to have his organization assume leadership 
of any movement in Atlanta. King instructed Hosea Williams, 

in charge of Southern Field Staff and Voter -Registration, 

Southern Christian Leadership Conference, to have some of 
his voter registration staff speak" to 'residents in the two 
Atlanta areas where current demonstrations have occurred and 
ascertain from these individuals what reasons they think yv. 
allowed them to be persuaded by the Student Nonviolent 
Coordinating Committee to demonstrate against local authority. 
King emphasized questioning must not be allowed to develop 
into a situation in which the Southern Christian Leadership 
Conference could be considered as conducting a movement 
assisting or opposing the Student Nonviolent Coordinating 
Committee. 




Appearance of S tokely Carmichael. Columbus, Ohio, 

September 17, l56'd> "" ” • . f 

On September 17, 1966, Stokely Carmichael spoke at 
the Chittenden Hotel, Columbus, Ohio, before an audience of 
approximately 500 persons on the topic of ’’black power.” 

His speech was sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist 
Fellowship for Social Justice. 

According to a news release, Carmichael stated in 
a press conference at Columbus that he was ’’not opposed to 
violence, nor have I ever been.” In explaining to those 
.present at the news conference the difference between his 
philosophy and the name of his organization, Carmichael 
stated that ’.'nonviolence has always been a tactic to us, 
not a way of life. I am 150% American, and America has- 
never opposed violence.”
