NOTES ON RACIAL

Following the announcement last
fall that the National Negro Business
League had Invited Local Leagues to
hold Trade Boosting and Advertising
Campaigns, a number or cities, inclua

Dallas and Waxahachie, Texas; and
Fort Smith, Arkansas, under took to
conduct such campaigns. Similar
campaigns have been held In Philadel

and Nashville, Tennessee.
Roanoke, Virginia, is stated to have
one of the best equipped and most

It is called the Hampton Theatre in

William H. Bright, a member of the
Boston Negro Business League, has
recently opened a Hardware and Kit
chen Furnishing store at 934 1-2 Tre
mont Street, Boston, Mass. Mr.
Bright's wares consist, among other
things, of window shades, gas burners,
mantles, chimneys, tin, enameled,
brass and glass ware, and crockery.
This is a unique business enterprise,
being the first and only one of its I
kind, it is said, Conducted anywhere in
New England by a colored man.
Announcement that the National
Negro Business League has started a
nation-wide campaign to advertise Ne
gro business enterprises, with a view
to their better support by colored
people, comes at a time when they
are awaking to a consciousness of In
creasing economic importance. Since
lie days of emancipation, the bulk of
the race has remained In the South
under economic and social conditions
which have changed but slowly. The
accepted basis of Biolety has kept
in the hands of the white man store
keeping and the professions, confining
the Negro to tenn ant farming and
unskilled labor. Gradually, such
sohools as Tuskegee, Calhoun, and a
host of others have built up an ever
increasing body of men and women
skilled in trades and trained to the
use of the Initiative and independent
thinking. Fully twenty years ago
this force began breaking through the
caste system in isolated cases, the
Droeess being stimulated by the
League founded by the late Booker T,
Washington some fifteen years ago
The policy has been twofold, encour
aging the individual pioneers by or
ganization and educating the race out
of the tradition that only the white
man was qualified to engage in trade.
Now that the labor shortage has
forced the large employers of the
country to look more to the South for
unskilled and semi-skilled workers,
the Negro is becoming more conscious
of his Importance industrially.- One
indirect effect should be to make the
League's campaign more fruitful than
if it had been launched at less oppor
tune time. And the movement seems
to be actuated by the right point of
view. "These campaigns are not or
ganized in any spirit of antagonism to
merchants of other races," says the
announcement, but for the sole pur
pose of advertising the existence or
the Negro merchant." New York
