The Rev. Ben Chavis Jr., who first decided not to respond to a threatening letter sent to a Chapel Hill radio station, said Tuesday he wants to bring national attention to the incident.

Chavis, executive director of the United Church of Christ's Commission for Racial Justice, and other United Church leaders said they want to bring attention to the incident ``as the latest example of why America needs leadership from the White House and churches to create a climate intolerant of racism.'The typewritten threat was arrived at WCHL in Chapel Hill Jan. 12, the beginning of the holiday weekend honoring the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. The four people it named, including Chavis, had been active in organizing an event in Chapel Hill to commemorate King.
