[Letter from Mario Marcel Salas to the United States Justice Department - November 8, 1979]

Description: Letter from Mario Marcel Salas of the Black Coalition on Mass Media to the Civil Rights Division of the United States Justice Department. He writes with an urgent tone, as word has spread of a possible march by the Ku Klux Klan. A radio personality, a city councilman, and an organization protesting a housing project have all been linked to the event. Fears of Klan members carrying weapons and enacting violence pose additional threats.

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

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). Only one page of their correspondence has been provided, however.

[Letter from Mario Marcel Salas to Complaints Division of the FCC - April 23, 1979]

Description: Letter from Mario Marcel Salas, president of the Black Coalition on Mass Media, to the complaints and compliance division of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It seems that, after buying a political advertisement to air on KAPE radio, the BCMM's ad was pulled from the air by the station when an official from the FCC ruled it to be a personal attack. The letter Mr. Salas sends is to inquire about the validity of the ruling, if such a ruling even occurred.
