Dear M1iSss Hurston:

I had the rare privilege to read a letter which you ad-
dressed to Mr. Larry Eisenberger on May8 7th. I just want to
sayT, keen to all that you have pointed up in that letter. I
only- vish that #iou would write a similar letter in which you
take -the Methodis~ts to task espec~ally regarding their racial
police ies .

It was may privpilege to use your books in a workshop which
was titled Afro American Folklore held recently in a Methodist
Camp in Leesburg, Florida. I know that the term Afro American
Folklore is misleading. What we were really doing was trying
to work through some of the implications of the recent Supreme
Court decision in relation to integration in education. You
may be sure that I had a delightful time in this challenging
s ituationr

It is myT hope that some day I will have the privilege
of moblting you. I have admired your work and I have found
many occasions to use your studies In intergroup situations.

I wish you every success in all that you are interested.

Sincerely yours,



Levi B. Miller
