Summary Note

On August 10, 1967, the Pensacola News ran an interview with Air Force Colonel Daniel James, Jr. of Pensacola, Florida, concerning his views of Negroes in the armed forces and the false allegations of extremists like Stokely Carmichael. Colonel James, age 47, was a veteran of 56 combat missions over North Vietnam. Because of different editions of the Pensacola News, the "first run" had a different headline than the "final run" and both articles are included here.
