[Letter from John H. Sanders to Henry B. Gonzalez - July 13, 1979]

[Letter from John H. Sanders to Henry B. Gonzalez - July 13, 1979]

Date: July 13, 1979
Creator: Sanders, John H.
Description: Letter from John H. Sanders, president of Organizations United for Eastside Development (OUED), to congressman Henry B. Gonzalez. The letter was written as a follow-up, and as a request for help, after Sanders met Gonzalez in Washington D. C. over problems brewing in the San Antonio community. It would seem that the City Manager and members of its staff made concerted efforts to undermine urban development, community centers, and other services that would have been beneficial to San Antonio's marginalized ethnic communities.

Description: Letter from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to Mario Marcel Salas, president of the Black Coalition on Mass Media (BCMM).
