The J.C. Peele, M.D. Papers (ca. 1918-1987, n.d.) is a manuscript collection that reflects the anti-communist sentiments of a physician in Kinston, N.C. This publication from the collection, dated May 1968, is a compilation of selected articles and documents pertaining to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s beliefs, ideals, and activities. Despite the booklet’s negative bias, the publication provides useful information and photos of Dr. King, his family, and the people who assisted him in his non-violent crusade for civil rights for all Americans.
