Description

These two letters were sent between Louise Day Hicks and a resident of Dorchester. The latter writes to Hicks to express appreciation for Hick's public acknowledgement of Christian faith. The author goes on to ask Hicks to "extend grace to the Black people of Boston," citing Christ as an example of love and tolerance. Hicks counters by arguing that she considers African Americans to be as much a part of her constituency as whites, and that she has always treated people equally.
