Lot 363: Martin Luther King, Jr. ''The Future of Integration'' Speech Delivered in 1959 -- ''...segregation is at bottom a form of slavery covered up with certain niceties of complexity...''

by Nate D Sanders

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $1,500

Description: Original transcript of a speech delivered by Martin Luther King, Jr. on 11 November 1959 to Iowa State University. Titled, ''The Future of Integration'', speech discusses the civil rights climate at that time and concludes with MLK's unwavering beliefs in civil non-violence. Reads in part, ''Broadly speaking there have been at least three distinct periods in the history of race relations in this nation, each representing growth over a former period. It is interesting to note that in each period there finally came a decision from the Supreme Court to give legal and constitutional validity to the dominant thought patterns of that particular period. The first period in the area of race relations extended from 1619 to 1863. This was the period of slavery. During this period the Negro was considered a thing to be used rather than a person to be respected. He was de-personalized cog in a vast plantation machine. In 1857, there finally came a decision from the Supreme Court to give constitutional validity to the whole system of slavery. This decision, known as the Dred Scott decision, stated in substance that the Negro is not a citizen of this nation; he was merely property subject to the dictates of his owner. The second period in the development of race relations in America extended, broadly speaking, from 1863 to 1954. This was the period of restricted emancipation We must admit that this second period was something of an improvement over the first stage of race relations, because it at least freed the Negro from the bondage of physical slavery, and accepted him as a legal fact. But it was not the best stage because it failed to accept the negro as a person. It was, therefore, very easy for the ethos of segregation to emerge as the basic principle and practice of this period. In 1896, through the famous Plessy versus Ferguson decision, the Supreme court established the doctrine of separate but equal as the law of the land. Through this decision the dominant thought patterns of the second stage of race relations was given legal and constitutional validity. But because segregation is at bottom a form of slavery covered up with certain niceties of complexity, the end results of the period of restricted emancipation was that of plunging the Negro into the abyss of oppression where he experienced the bleakness of nagging injustice. The third period in the development of race relations in America had its beginning on May seventeenth, 1954. This is the period of constructive integration. It is the period in which men seek to rise the level of genuine intergroup and interpersonal living. The Supreme Court's decision, which came to give legal and constitutional validity to the dominant thought patterns of this period, stated that the old Plessy doctrine must go, that separate facilities were inherently unequal, and that to segregate a child on the basis of his race is to deny that child of equal protection of the law. As a result of this decision we find ourselves standing on the threshold of the third and most constructive period in the development of race relations in the history of our nation. To state it figuratively in Biblical terms, we have broken loose from the Egypt of slavery; We have moved through the wilderness of ''separate but equal,'' and now we stand on the border of the promised land of integration. As we stand at the threshold of this third period of race relations, we notice two contradictory forces at work in the South: the forces of defiance and the forces of compliance. The forces of defiance are at work in several ways. Many public officials are using the power of their offices to defy the law of the land. Through their irresponsible actions, their inflammatory statements, and their dissemination of distortions and half truths, they have succeeded in arousing abnormal fears and morbid antipathies within the minds of underprivileged and uneducated whites, leaving them in such a state of excitement and confusion that they are led to acts of meanness and violence that no normal person would commit. This defiance also expresses itself in the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan. Determined to preserve segregation at any cost, this organization employs methods are crude and primitive...There is always the implied threat of violence. Then there are the White Citizens' Councils. Since they operate on a higher political and economic level than the Klan, a halo of respectability hovers over them. But like the Klan, they are determined to preserve segregation and thereby defy the desegregation rulings of the Supreme Court. They base their defense on the legal maneuvers of ''interposition'' and ''nullification.'' Unfortunately for those who disagree with the Councils, their methods do not stop with legal tactics; their methods range from threats and intimidation to economic reprisals against Negro men and women. These methods also extend to white persons who will dare to take a stand for justice. They demand absolute conformity from whites and abject submission from Negroes...'' 12pp. speech measures 8.5'' x 11'' with staple to top left and minor toning throughout. Very good condition.

Lot 397: Eisenhower Letter Signed Regarding Threatening Letters to Him: ''...'If you are so cowardly...as to agree...to this atrocious amendment, I shall regard you as practically a traitor'...''

by Nate D Sanders

July 31, 2014, 5:00 PM PST

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $2,250

Description: Dwight D. Eisenhower typed letter signed as President, dated 3 February 1954 on official ''Personal and Confidential'' White House stationery. Here, Eisenhower writes to his brother Edgar, discussing their agreements and disagreements relating, presumably, to the Bricker Amendment: ''Thank you for your most recent letter on S.J.Res.I. [Senate Joint Resolution I] It made so much sense to me that I had some of my legal advisers go over it. One of the finest made the remark, 'Certainly it is much more reasonable than most of the incoming mail on this subject.' By this he meant that most of our mail is either of the kind that says, 'The safety and security of our nation demand that you support without reservation this amendment to our Constitution,' or 'If you are so cowardly and weak-kneed as to agree for political reasons to this atrocious amendment, I shall regard you as practically a traitor.' We believe that the kind of things to which we have agreed largely meet the points for which you argue in your letter. I must say that the thing that I agree with most in your letter is your statement at the very beginning, namely, that 'the whole affair has generated a lot more heat than light.' Never have I in my life been so weary of any one subject or proposition. I have just written a letter to Janis who, during the course of a trip she is planning with her family, will come to Washington for a brief stay. So far as I can dope out from the schedule she gave, they will probably be here a few days somewhere around the seventh or eighth of May...This is a slaves life.'' Signed clearly, ''D.E.'' Letter measures 8'' x 10.5'' on one page, with four holes punched at top. Near fine.

by Nate D Sanders

July 31, 2014, 5:00 PM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $2,250

Description: Dwight D. Eisenhower typed letter signed as President, dated 17 September 1956 on official White House stationery. Here, Eisenhower writes to his brother Edgar, thoroughly discussing the current political climate in the Pacific Northwest and the resignation of his Secretary of the Interior, Doug McKay: ''...As to the people who feel that they should not vote for me because of the added risks this job imposes upon my life, I have no real answer. I have tried, so far as possible, to throw such thoughts out of my mind. The only reason I got into politics in the first place was to attempt to bring the United States around to understand the virtues of progress along a straight, clearly-defined road, rather than one that veered constantly and always to the left...There is one statement you make that illustrates again how easy it is for misapprehensions and misunderstandings to gain credibility in the United States. You say, 'Republicans in that state resent the fact that the national Administration required Doug McKay to resign...and run for United States Senator.' Nothing could be further from the truth. Doug McKay received a number of suggestions from Oregon that he run for the Senate...when McKay came to me to announce his intention to resign, he was so certain that he would have no opposition in the primary that I gave him quite a long letter expressing my satisfaction that he was going to carry the banner of the Administration against [Wayne] Morse, who, as you may suspect, ranks quite low in my opinion...'' Signed ''DE'' in black ink. Letter measures 7'' x 10.5'' on four single-sided pages, with two holes punched and staple holes at top. Near fine.

Lot 400: Dwight Eisenhower -- ''...if we had never [helped] other nations...Iran and Greece would have been...under Communist domination...Central America would be gone and all of Southeast Asia...''

by Nate D Sanders

July 31, 2014, 5:00 PM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $2,250

Description: Dwight D. Eisenhower typed letter signed post-Presidency, dated 27 September 1966 on his personal letterhead. Here, Eisenhower writes to his brother Edgar on his foreign relations policies as President: ''...My opinion of Bonner Fellers is not such as to encourage me to make any deep study of his convictions. However, I do admit that here and there he does refer to facts that have been long known. It is easy indeed to appeal to any people who are anxious, as all of us rightfully are, to reduce governmental expenditures. Admitting that all kinds of mistakes and blunders have been made in the administration of the foreign aid program over the years I just wonder what people think would be the situation of the United States today if we had never undertaken the policy of helping other nations. Certainly Iran and Greece would have been long since under Communist domination, while western Europe, if not in the same position, would be cut up in a checkerboard of Communist and non-Communist nations. Central America would be gone and all of Southeast Asia. Without going further into such speculative factors I can say this with complete confidence as to my convictions: without those expenditures we would be in a far more dangerous position than we are today and spending very much more money for so-called 'security.' Anyway, I will be glad to talk to you about it when we meet on the twenty-ninth. Devotedly,'' and then signed ''Ike E'' boldly in black ink. Letter on one page measures 7'' x 10.25'' with two holes punched at top, else fine condition.
