KPFA Folio note, July 4, 1962:
The militant North Carolina Negro leader who fled the United States last fall to escape a Federal warrant for his arrest on a charge of kidnapping tells the full story of events which led up to the by now celebrated Monroe incident—in an exclusive interview by Marc Schleifer, recorded in Havana, Cuba, in March 1962. Although this program is exceptionally long, and the recording quality substandard, the material warrants special attention.
