J. W. Cummings to Harold Fatzer

Cummings, J. W.

In this letter J. W. Cummings, a resident of Kansas City, Kansas, appeals to state attorney general Harold Fatzer to not desegregate public schools. According to Cummings, integration would lead to miscegenation and would be the downfall of society. He writes that ?we must keep our country great by not permitting a Policing action forcing communities into a like pattern, forming a state against our will. We must have the liberty of community majority choice, to accept or reject the kind of life our children live.? He also believed that those causing this ?unrest? were violating the principles of democracy and had been unduly influenced by Communist doctrine.
