ABSTRACT
The article reports on the trip of delegates from National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to Caracas, Venezuela to observe the voting process and progress of a reform that would have formally recognized Afro-Venezuelans as a group in that nation's Constitution. Although the constitutional amendments did not pass, delegates were impressed with the enthusiasm of Venezuelans at the polls, and said that the NAACP will continue to work with Afro-Venezuelans and those of African descent throughout the South American continent.
