Statement by Mrs. Robert J. Stuart, President
League of Women Voters of the United States
on the occasion of the death of
Dr. Martin Luther. King, Jr.

All white America stands guilty for what happened to Dr, Martin Luther King, Jr. last night in Memphis. The League of Women Voters shares the feeling of outrage and frustration that grips the nation.

Words will no longer do. The efforts we have taken so far will not suffice. Now is the time for vigorous and constructive action by the Congress, the state legislatures, and by every community to see that Negro citizens take their rightful place in American life.

Every individual has a part to play. Civil rights issues are basically personal issues; they call for personal expressions of beliefs -- not only to law-making bodies on every level of government but in answer to the bigoted in our communities whether they be relatives, neighbors, or friends.

If each of us takes on the same kind of personal commitment that characterized Dr. King's life, his goals can be achieved.

They must be achieved.
