“NEGROES VS. HITLERISM"
TO BE SUBJECT OF FFF
Plans for a nation-wide confer
ence of Negroes to combat the
menace of Hitlerism were ann
o j ced today by Edward Wore,
executive secretary of the Harlj l
Division of the Fight for Freedom
Commitee. The conference will
be held in Washington on January
8 and 9.
‘ Every N 'gro is aware of the
serious situation concerning the
welfare of our country today,”
Mr. White said in explaining the
purpose of tne meeting. ‘‘Al
though conditions grow more a
cute each day, there is still consid
erable speculation as to the at i
tude of the American Negro; that
is. we just d( r’t seem to have any
attitude on the question of Hitle •
“The intelligent Negro hates
fascism, because he has experienc
ed so much of it. This is so true
that we have treated it as some
thing that goes without saying
and have concentrated all our ef
fort on what we consider the more
pressing problem.. ..that of
knocking out Hitlerism at home.
“But the defeat of France
should teach us something. While
we must continue the fight for our
domestic rights, we must recog
nize that with Hitler victorious
there is no future for the Negro
here or anywhere else. We can
not afford the luxury of indiffer
ence. Hitler hates us more than
the Russians or the British or the
Jews. We have no place in his so
called New Order.
“Negro are determined that Hit
ler and all other brands of fascism
must be destroyed. The purpose
of this conference is to give sun
stance to this conviction and to
put our words into action.”
Mr. White reported that dele
gates from churches, fraternal or
ganizations, labor groups, and
press associations are expected to
