a member of the NACP legal staff

dressed the NCC Forum, was intro
duced by Dr. Joseph H. Taylor,
chairman of the Forum Committee.
The NAACP attorney said the

dez from Shaw University and Dr.

She contrasted public opposition
to “sit-ins" dating back to 1869 with
the success of today’s efforts. “At
longs last”, die said, “the public
has come to realize that Negroes
have rights that must be respected.
Seeing the NAACP taking civil
rights cases to court and winning
them has made a great difference
in the public’s attitude toward pro
tection of these rights.”
