The National Association for the
Advancement of" Colored People,
70 Fifth avenue, New "York, today,
published a statement giving in de
tail the events leading up to the pre
vention by Mayor Peters, of Boston,
of the showing of David W. Grif
fith's film, "The Birth of a Nation."
' On May 16, the day on .which the
picture' was- to have been shown,
Mayor Peters suspended the license
of the Shubert .-theater, acting upon
the recommendation of the Board
of Censors which had received prc-r
tests' from the Boston .branch of the
National Association for the Ad
vancement of Colored People. But
ler R. Wilson, secretary of the Bos
ton branch, "N. A A. C P., acted as
attorney for the protestanfs against
the film, among whom, were-a col
ored .post of the American Ixgion,
the Knights of Columbus, the Col
oripd Veterans of All Wars, the Na
tionar Colored Pythian organization.
the National "Equal Rights league,'
William H. Lewis,, Rer. 1L. A. M.

sible fo show the picture in Boston.
The fight made against the "Birth
of a Nation" in New York city by the
National Association for the Ad
vancement of Colored People did not
-succeed as in Boston because in New
York there are no censors with the
authority conferred on those in Bo's
ton,. The mayor and police com
missioner of New York; to whom
protests were carried, declared their
lack of legal authority to interfere
with the showing. .

the real men of our .race. He was a

Spent his life'for them. He was the
senior Bishop of the African Method

is doing a great work for our people.
although here and there you will find
some; fellow who will try to sav
things which are not in keeping with
Sunday school ethics about the man
who is rendering service. A few
weeks ago Dr. Moton made a tour
through North Carolina and he said
some real helpful things about us
and for us.' He pleaded our cause in
places where we could not get our
selves and it ts necessary lor us to
get from time to time. Well he was
there and he had the say. He told
the "Lord about us, and .then he .told
the younc.whtte man about his short-'
comings; about hk uprisings and
down goings. -He told him .of -jus
