Have you tried Dave Dellinger's From Yale to Jail? That memoir may have some
material on the NYC rally.

Hi Karen:

Re: H. Rap Brown, his speech was probably covered in the Village Voice or
East Village Other. Most university libraries have them on microfilm. Evo
is probably best found through the keyword "underground press" -- The
Village Voice stands on its own. It would guess the speech took place in 66
or 67. Check also C. Carson's book on SNCC -- or any other history of SNCC.

Re: draft resistance. I suspect this was a rally about the Boston 5 or
whatever they were called. Dr. Spock, Michael Ferber, Wm. Coffin, Mitch
Goodman, and Marcus Raskin who wre indicted for supporting draft
resistance. They were indicted 11/67; the rally was likely during the
winter of 67-68. I was there and may have written it up in WIN Magazine
(also on microfilm in many libraries). But I recall a big article on it in
the Village Voice.

3. Don't know the third, but it's possible that the War Resisters League
helped organize it. I think they have a web page.

Hope this helps.
