Moderates and Militants

Muse, Benjamin
April 1956
New Republic;4/2/56, Vol. 134 Issue 14, p8
The article focuses on the efforts of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), in trying to bring about school desegregation. The indiscriminate aggressiveness of the NAACP has contributed to the present attitude of resistance to the Supreme Court's anti-segregation decision and has registered no gains. A planned pattern of litigation has been suggested for the NAACP which includes a new appeal for moderation. This would avoid sections of acute race tension and prod first those counties where Negroes are few and where integration of the public schools could be accomplished with little difficulty.
