“If Negro, White Leaders Don't Get Together,
Khrushchev Won’t Have To Worry About Burying”
NEW YORK—(ANP)—“Ef the
white and Negro leaders do not
get together on common ground,
we won't need Khruschev to bury
us; we will bury each other.”
That caustic comment came
last week from the Ups of John
Councilman Winters Heard Here
Councilman John W. Winters of
Raleigh was the speaker at Shaw
University’s Annual Awards Day
program in Greenleaf Auditorium
Wednesday, May 13. Winters, who
was recently elected to the Shaw
trustee board, said that Negroes
should atop being satisfied, re-ex
amine themselves, and find out
why they are not making the pro
gress they should.
He stated that for too many
years Ne groes have been consum
ers and not producers. They must
build a sound economy for them
selves Whether recognized or not,
doing a job well makes anyone a
scholar in the truest sense. Negro
es must dedicate themselves to the
task of tearing down the curtain
which separates them from rights
and dignities which they should
enjoy. He declared “I am a dedi
cated fighter for civil rights, but
sit-ins lie-in. and other forms of
protest will never do the entire Job
of creating equality."
The Negro has a job to do
himself In addition to these
methods. Winters predieted
that the Civil Rights Bill will
pass, without too much modifi
cation. but, he added, "this in
Itoelf will not make Negroes o
