NAACP Scores
DAR Stand On
Anderson Concert
Washington, D. C.—Scoring the
DAR for its lack of courage and
Americanism displayed by its re
fusal to accept the “very modest
conditions Miss Anderson in self
respect established for the accept
ance of the DAR’s invitation that
she sing a benefit concert in Con
stitution Hall” the NAACP this
week told the President General
of the Daughters of the American
“Americans would have respected
the D.A.R. more, even though they
might not have agreed with the
D.A.R.’s decision to reject Miss
Anderson’s terms, had the D.A.R.
not made the casuist and ridiculous
excuse that other artists invited to
sing in the series had not imposed l
any conditions.
“There is no analogy in that, as
far as we are able to learn, all of
the other artists who were invited
are white, and there has been no
ban on the appearance of white ar
tists whether they be Americans
or foreign born. Only Negro artists
have been banned by the DJL.R.
from use of Constitution Hall.
“It is very certain that the
D.A.R. and not Miss Anderson will
suffer in public esteem by this de
cision of the D.A.R. at a time when
