Additional Details:
The picture on the other side was made at Highlander Folk School during the Labor Day weekend of 1957. Attentive pupils identified by the numbers are: 1. Martin Luther King, Jr. The association indicated here is not unusual for Dr. King, who belongs to several important Communist front organizations, and who regularly employs or affiliates with known Communists. 2. Abner W. Berry, of the Central Committee of the Communist Party. 3. Aubrey Williams, President of the Communist front, the Southern Conference Educational Fund. 4. Myles Horton, Director of the Highlander Folk School (for Communist training). This school was later closed down by the State of Tennessee, but an offspring is now thriving in Knoxville
