Letter to Hue Fortson from mother

EE-4-q

[Envelope addressed to Rev. and Ms. Hue Fortson from Hue’s mother]

June 27, 1978

With my own ears I listen to Jim’s teaching or sermon and this is what was said White Man brought Black to America from Africa on the Good Ship called Jesus. The Blacks were made slaves. Jim has taken the blacks back to Africa by airplane and ship. Freedom. I feel like this will be read before you get it, & I doubt if you’ll get it. I’ve only received one letter from U.

Love, Mama
