Following the Southern Youth
Con'ference, held February past
in Richmond, Virginia, there has
a* militant Southein
youth movement which in turn
has ibrought trade union organi
zation and improved living and
working conditions for thousands
of Southern workers.
Mr. Davis stated that tTie Con-
gri'ess could feel justly, proud of
the part it played in oi^anizing
Negro steel workers by throwing
Oongirest fftrces behind the steel
Workers Ora^nizing Committee.
It was one of the importarit fac
tors in forming the Negro Com
mittee to Sup5>ort Organization of
Steel Workers, a group was ac-
tive'in every Negro community
and which en^raced a majority
of Negro community leaders.
“Fifteen months of activity
have won many friends and af
filiates to the Congress. Many
leaders who thought the Congfress
was a “dual” organization whose
purpose was to duplicate the work
