Letter to the Editor "RC Student Asks Classmates To Join Fight for Equality"

Description

This letter to the editor, written by Robert Edge, discusses the Richmond Human Relations Council Tutoring Program. This program deals directly with the race issue in Richmond and makes positive strides to finding a solution to "the problem." Edge asks students to come help tutor students in the "slums of this city" that need help. Transportation is offered to any student that is willing to sacrifice his or her time to help those that are in need and less fortunate. “There is not excuse for the good people on this campus not to come out and help us," Edge wrote. The tutoring program has previously been highlighted by the Collegian here.
