July 1956
New Republic;7/9/56, Vol. 135 Issue 2, p14
The article focuses on manipulation of racial attitude against labor organizations in the southern states of the U.S. The great majority of Southern unions have declared themselves unequivocally in support of integration. There has been a decided step-up in anti-union activity, which union leadership is in poor position to counteract. White Citizen Council (WCC), a white supremacist organization, is undermining unionism very effectively. Factories most vulnerable to WCC propaganda are those. with a majority of white workers but a substantial number of African Americans.
