Text

The January meeting of the Fairfax county branch of the N.A.A.C.P. took place January 6th at the Second Baptist Church of Falls Church. Secretary Henderson read extracts from the Attorney General's report to the Senate concerning so called radicalism among Negroes. It was evident to the hearers that the Attorney General considers protests against injustice , jim-crowism, disfranchisement, segregation and lynching as radicalism of the ultra sort. Rev. Powell and President Tinner advocated opposition to the bond issue in the corporation on the ground that none of the money to be raised would benefit the colored citizenry.
