White and Colored
Join In
“Next Phase"
gan, September 30 - White and
colored leaders from the South
today hailed the new all-African
play "The Next Phase" as the an-|
swer to Little Rock. They com
mitted them selves to bring Its
message to America.
They spoke at the Moral Re ,
Armament Assembly of Nations
as the cast of 55 from 19 African
nations returned from a nine
week series of 49 performances
in Washington, Atlanta, Tuskegee
and Broadway to 53,000 people, j
Describing the play’s perfor-]
mances in Atlanta, Ezra Ncwana,
African Nationalist from South]
Africa and one of the cast, said,
“It’s the boldest and most auda
cious approach to today's burning
issues. For the South to see black'
and white Africans -arrayed to-]
gether on the stage fighting as
one unit, made a profound im-|
pression. The destiny of our age
is to make such a uniting idea
a reality everywhere."
Colonel A. T. Walden, Negro
attorney from Atlanta, said, “I
want to give my part in carrying
this answer to a turbulent Amer
ica. I am certain, beyond a shad
ow of all reasonable doubt, this
is the answer.
Immediately a Louisville law
yer, Stanley Newhall, with forty
years of legal experience, came
forward to the platform and
said, "We think we are on the
crest of a wave in America, but
In reality we are on a divide. One
road leads through fear, selfish
ness and greed to disaster. The
other, the road of MRA, is bring-!
ing us to a new day for the whole
of mankind. The Africans are
leading the way. All it takes Is
dedicated men—I’ll be one. We
must bring this to the South and(
to America before it is too late.
I want to apologize for m> super-1
iority towards the colored race.”
“America has given generous
aid to the world,” said Blanton
Belk of Richmond, Virginia, “but
these Africans, at tremendous
personal sacrifice, have given
America aid that money cannot
buy. As a southerner, I believe
this is our only hope. Here is
ideology which changed men of
every race and color and united
them in the task of rebuilding

art in the Broadway theatre. It
was ’S.R.O.’—standing room only.
It has the message all the white
world must see.”

Natl Organization Meet
With Supreme Court on ^
NAACP's Feeder Ass'n
Fourteen major national or
ganizations yesterday (Monday,
October 7) intervened with the
United States Supreme Court in
defense of the constitutional
right of the National Associaticr
for the Advancement of Colored
People (NAACP) to enjoy free
dom of association. The 14 groups
came to the support of the
NAACP by filing an amici curiae
(friends of the court) brief in a
case entitled NAACP v. State of
Alabama which the U. S. Supreme
Court agreed to review during
its current term.
The brief was submitted by
Leo Pfeffer. director of the Com
mission on Law and Social Ac
tion of the American Jewish Con
gress, who is serving as attorney
for the following 14 organize
tions. American Baptist Conven
tion, Commission on Christian
Social Progress; American Civil
Liberties Union; American
F r i e n ds Service Committee;
American Jewish Committees;
American Jewish Congress; A
merican Veterans Committee;
Anti-Defamation League of B’nai
B'rith; Board of Home Missions
of the Congregational ar.d Chris
tian Churches; Council for Chris
tian Social Action of the United
Church of Christ; Japanese A
merican Citizens League; Jewish
Labor Committee; National Com
munity Relations Advisory Coun
cil; United Synagogue of Amer
ica and Workers Defense League
The signatories to the brief
described themselves as "private,
voluntary associations of Ameri
cans formed to achieve specific
purposes, religious civic, educa
tionaf. and others. As such.” they
maintained, “they have a direct
interest in this proceeding which
raises the question whether a
state may constitutionally place
prohibitions or crippling restric
tions on the operation of a volun
tary association similarly organ
ized for a specific purpose, that
of promoting equal rights for all,
without discrimination based on
Voicing their deep concern at
the State of Alabama’s “assault
on freedom of association,” the
organizations declared: “Today it
is the NAACP that, is subjected
to attack. Tomorrow, the same
measures may be taken against
any group that supports a cause
opposed by state officials.”
Background of Court Test
The case is an appeal to the
high court by the NAACP to re
view the decision of an Alabama
circuit court handed down in
July, 1956 which fined the As-1
sociation $100,000 and held it in!
contempt of court because the
NAACP refused to turn over a
list of its Alabama members. The
NAACP geared that publication
of its membership records would'
subject its members to boycott]
and physical violence. The As
sociation halted its operations
in Alabama in June. 1956, after]
-e panssi uaaq peq uo’punfut ue 1
gainst it. The injunction cited
the failure of the NAACP to reg
ister with the state. When attor
neys for he NAACP offered to
register, the Montgomery circuit
court judge ruled that they could
not. The Alabama attorney gen
eral then demanded membership
The appeal of the Alabama
case to the U. S. Supreme Court
is the first time the high court
has agreed to review any of the
numerous anfi-NAACP action*
taken by Southern states in re
cent years.
Freedom of Association Is
Critical l$su»
The brief submitted by the 14
organizations does not enter into
any question about segregation
or integration, but argues instead
on the constitutional freedom of
“The record in this case
shows,” the brief points out,
“that public officials of Alabama
have attempted to frustrate the
efforts of the NAACP on behalf
of the Negroes in Alabama and
to outlaw it from the state. Wo
j are concerned with the implica
tions of this assertion of govern
mental power irrespective of
whether or not we support the
j aims of the NAACP in combatting
I racial inequality. It has become
| perfectly obvious that Alabama
i not only is attempting to maintain
its statewide pattern of racial
segregaion but is also working
for the distruction of all orsrani
zied opposition to this policy.
Alabama’s effort to expel the
NAACP has therefore placed in
jeopardy the fundamental con
stitutional right of innividuals to
join together to form associations
in order to express and advance
their views.”
Night to Anonymity
The brief argues that the Con
stitution protects the right of
the citizen to maintain anonymity
and that the NAACP cannot be
compelled to make its member
ship lists public. This right of
anonymity, the brief asserts, is
exercised by every person who
writes a letter to a newspaper ai.d
asks that his name be withheld.
Authors who write under pen
names and respondents in public
opinion polls also rely on this
right. Unless an organization op
erates illegally or has anti-social
or anti-democratic objectives, the
brief states, there can be no legal
force compelling it to publish Us
roster of members.
Right to Existence
Summarizing their concern in
the case, the 14 organization*
emphasized that they are directly
i n t e r e sted in the question
“whether the Federal Constitu
tion stands as an effective shield
against oppressive action by a
state designed to exclude from
its territory any organization it
dislikes. Since the measures taken
against the NAACP here could be
taken against any organization,
the right of each of these organ
izations to exist, as well as that
of the NAACP, is at stake."
