Good-by to Jim Crow?
Fifty years ago, the status of the Negro in the United States was not very different from what it was at the end of the Civil War. Lynching, disfranchisement, color-conscious courts, segragation in education, employment, housing and public places were the order of the day - and not merely in the South.
Today, much has changed.
*Today, more that 1,250,000 Negroes in the South are registered to vote. Congress has four Negro members, scores are in Northern city councils and state legislatures; others sit as judges.
*Today, "Equal Justice Under Law" is less of a slogan, more of a reality in the courts of the North and occasionally even of the South
*Industry and business now have increasing numbers of Negro semi-skilled, technical and white-collar workers.
*The Supreme Court has outlawed discrimination in the public schools. Discrimination in travel and public recreation has been banned.
None of this progress came automatically or through the voluntary abandonment of cherished and favored privilege. It had to be fought for and won. here is the exciting story of the organization and the men who led these battles, together with a forecast of what still lies ahead in the FIGHT FOR FREEDOM.
