Ca rmichael Cries 'Black Power' on Tour Johnson To Hold Spending,
Of Northern Cities; Audiences Enthusiastic Ask Reserve Board Help

Please don't

all by itself,

Stokely Carmichael, the Stu-
dent Nonviolent Coordinating
Committee has done a drama-
tic about face since the days
when it helped thousands of
Northern white students to
fight for civil rights in the
South. Last week, Carmichael
stumped Northern cities and
found , receptive audiences in
Negro districts., Here's a com-
prehensive report on his mes-
sage as developed on the tour
and previously.
NEW YORK ()-The applause
t within the Harlem church was
frequent, almost deafening. Even
from the street, through heavy
wooden doors closed to keep out
whites, cries of "that's right," and
"preach, brother," could be heard.
But many of the remarks tum-
bling rapidly from the lips ofthe
. slender young Negro behind the
pulpit microphone were sharply
at odds with the religious setting.
"This country is moving to de-
stroy black people," he shouted
to waves of applause. "We cannot
afford to be part of the American
system. We have to destroy West-
ern civilization. Integration is just
a trick bag. Nothing counts but
power. We have to hook up with
the people of the third world."

His Harlem audience happened
to be a fund-raising rally. It
might as well have been the cheer-

night before, or the standing-room
only crowd in a stuffy, second-
floor room in Newark, or the thou-
sand Negroes who blocked a Phil-
adelphia street.
Trinidad-born, but raised in
Harlem and the Bronx, Carmichael
is one of the new SNCC leaders
whose roots are in the valleys of
the big cities, not the dusty vil-
lages of the rural South.
Not All
While his radical statements
catch the headlines, they are by
no means all that Carmichael is
trying to say to "black people"-
he shuns the word "Negro," using
It as a term of derision.
