The John Lennon - Deportation Proceedings

Letters to the INS - Dick Cavett, TV host (page 2)

Dick Cavett hosted a TV talk show starting in 1968. In 1972 he invited John and Yoko to perform "Woman is the Nigger of the World" on his show, and he testified in their deportation hearings.

Cavett wrote that "The United States would be made richer by the fact that this vitally productive and hard-working artist" - Yoko - "has chosen to focus and develop her abundant talents here."
