This is one of a series of bulletins produced by the Campaign against Racial Discrimination. (CARD) was a British organization, founded in 1964 which lasted until 1967, that lobbied for race relations legislation. The group's formation was inspired by a visit by Martin Luther King to London in December 1964 on his way to Stockholm to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. The Trinidadian pacifist Marion Glean, then a graduate student at the London School of Economics, arranged with Bayard Rustin for King to meet a group of Black spokespersons and activists at the Hilton Hotel, where an ad hoc committee was formed for a movement to "agitate for social justice and oppose all forms of discrimination",with CARD formally being launched at the next meeting on 10 January 1965. ref WONG/7/18.
