Text

Mr. Haley Douglass gave a very instructive and inspiring talk to the citizens who gathered on Friday night at the N.A.A.C.P. meeting. Mr. Douglass did not trim in his speech. Unlike some who come to Virginia, he handled the "race prejudice" problems without gloves and pointed out the hopeful aspects of the masses can be aroused from their lethargic stage of indifference. On Friday, February 21st, the N.A.A.C.P. met at Mansfield, Va.
