The attorney for black cultural center

that he might ask Orange-Chatham Dis

the threatening letters recently received
by leaders on both sides of the move

The letters, which were signed by a
group calling itself the "Brothers of

BCC advocates Crawford, Black Stu

Thomas and Black Awareness Council
co-founder Tim Smith.
Alan McSurely, who also represents
University Police officer Keith Edwards
and the UNC housekeepers in addition
to Crawford, said Sunday that he was
planning to send copies of the three
letters to Fox for further investigation.
Fox could not be reached for com
McSurely said that he originally
planned to include the letters as part of

during which 6 million Jews perished.
The initial night of violence against
Germany's Jewish community was
spurred by the Nov. 7, 1938, assassina

Upon learning that his parents had been
deported from Germany, Herschel
Grynszpan, a Polish-Jewish student in
Paris, shot vom Rath, whom he mistook
for the ambassador.
The Nazi press blamed the Jews of
Germany for the assassination, and as
revenge, Propaganda Minister Joseph
Goebbels coordinated a nationwide

"Things are about the same as last

the letters were coming from outside
the University community.
"These letters definitely came from
the outside," McSurely said. "They may
have been typed up at the University,
