thlg radio program be in harmony'
with this observance which Is annually
observed during the week of
Abraham Lincoln's birthday.
We In Greensboro have long felt
a sense of personal pride In the fine
spirit of inter-raclal understanding
and co-operntlon that ' exists here.
Memlters of both races work together
In many ways In order that our community
life may be Improved. Lifelong
friendships have been formed by
persons of different races who have
shared the same hopes and IdealsAmong
the most notable examples of
lnter-raclal co-operation where white
and Negro people work harmoniously
together may be mentioned such
Institutions as Bennett college. A. and
T. college. Palmer Memorial institute,
the public schools, the L. Richardson
Memorial hospital, the Carnegie
library, the Windsor Community
Center, the Hayes-Taylor T. M. C. A.,
and the Carlson Boy Scoot camp.
Each of these Institutions Is a tangible
example of mutual good will
existing between the races in our
city. Each meets a vital need and the
entire'community structure would be
weakened If any one anouia oe removed.
Such organizations demonstrate
how race relations In community
life might be improved by
working together with understanding
and honest good will.
In this regard should also be mentioned
such organizations as the
Community Chest, Re^ Cross, the
"Tuberculosis Association, the Interracial
Commission, Y. W. C. A_, the
Boy and Girl 8cout organizations, all
of which operate with a large degree
of fairness In order that the entire
community might be served.
' Manx of the finest products of In^/lefcraclal
^o-operation have been the
Results of personal contacts between
white employers and Negro workers.
In many southern homes, racial barriers
have been broken down and a
mutual understanding of bopes and
aspirations has resulted.
- .r However, must has been done In
the past?even more remains to be
done in the immediate future.
America has represented in het
-.life blood the racial strains of nearly
every race on the. face of the
earth. And in the- all-out effort fm
victory In which the whole country
is now engaged, with the actual fu
ture of our democratic form of gov
ernment In real danger a completi
fwnnerntion of all these American!
is necessary to win the War.
We have herp Greensboro at
the Institutions necessary to the.de
veJopment of a finer and greater In
ter-racial understanding. Beside
those already mentioned may t?
added the church as the agency o
rellglon? thi home as the agency o
_the family, the state as the agenc;
of government. These are other or
ganlzatlons through which the goa
of complete Inter racial good-will, Jui
tice and honor may be achieved. On
