CAMPAIGN HAPPENINGS OF THE
N. N. C. C. L. A.
The first one hundred per cent
block in Kansas City-was reported on
Wednesday, March 5th. General Pearl
M, Dabney reported on that day that
under her Division every objective
had' been taken and that every house
in the 1800 block on East 21th street
was displaying from its window the
N. N. C. C. L. A. Flag, cmplematlc
of membership.
General Mario B. Wheeler reported
the first one hundred per cent family
as tjfi result of the efforts of her Di
vision on Tuesday, March 1th, the day
of the sleet. A family of eight mem
bers, composed of a father, mother,
three daughters, one son and two
sons-in-law. All eight joined the
League. They live In General Wheel
er's block on 21st and Harrison.
One of the surprising features of
tho Campaign is the support which is
being given this movement by White
people. White people sign the peti
tion and pay the membership fee al
most as readily as do our own. Every
white business house on 18th street,
except one, has enlisted, and that one
has promised to enlist later.
Our Campaign was the subject of a
discussion in one of the white High
Schools one day last week, when It
was taken under "Current Topics."
In closing the discussion the teacher
said to tho class, "This movement on
tho part of tho Negroes is entirely
right and proper. Thero Is no reason
why the Negro should have every
right that is guaranteed him under
the Constitution of tho United States.
There is no reason why in a country
where Democracy exist, any class of
citizens should havo any rights that
another class of citizens does not
have."
Just tho little agitation that we
have had, as a result of the present,
campaign, brought that admission of
the justice of our claims. Suppose
that wero multiplied by a million?
The Kansas City Membership Cam
paign of the N. N. C. C. L. A. is cre
ating a large amount of interest in
Missouri and throughout tho country
as well. This interest is shown in
letters that are coining in asking for
Information as to how thoso living
outside of Kansas City may secure
membership.
From a little town in Nebraska, in
which there aro only five colored
families, thero camo an application
for membership for the entire colored
population.
In another place in this issue is
published a letter from Marshall, Mis
souri, which expresses the opinion of
every' loyal progressive Negro.
