Phoenix, Arizona, Friday 8, 1960
Urban League
Executive
First Negro
Lester B. Granger, executive
director of the National Urban
League, noted a direct relation
ship between American industrial
growth and its resultant social
mobility, and Negro youth dem
onstrations before some 2,000
delegates to the White House
Conference on Children and
Youth, March 29, 1960. Mr. Gran-r
ger addressed one of the principal,
theme assemblies of the Con
ference, the only Negro to do so.
“The lunch-counter sit-ins car
ried on by Negro youngsters con
stitute a bitterly ironic, or a
tragically absurd commentary on
current-day American life,’’ Mr.
Granger said. “Some would say
that it is absurd that so much
quiet heroism . . . should be in
vested in merely claiming their
right to sit on a lunch-counter
stool and be served in a five
and-ten-cent store. Others were
struck by the tragedy being en
acted by Negro young people
who find this as their only means,
unaided, of voiding their or
ganized, non - violent protest
against strangulation of their fu
ture by an indifferent, or ignor
ant, or brutally hostile surround
ing society.
“And surely any absurdity in
the young people’s choice of a
protest outlet is out-matched by
the spectacle of legislators being
lauded for ‘heroism’ when they
filibuster against an effort to
rescue the future of these color
ed young people. Surely the trag
edy of lunch-counter sit-ins is
not one-half as heartbreaking as
that of a great nation taking time
out from a struggle for world
freedom and from leadership of
the still-free world, to haggle and
bicker over questions firmly de
cided by a majority of the Am
erican public and our highest
judicial authority.”
But, Mr. Granger observed,
these developments could not
happen “in a static, truly caste
bound society. In such a fluid so
ciety ideas are as free-floating as
people; when families break
away from their old mooring
places they change their ideas
and when they change their ideas
they also change relationships
with their neighbors.
“A new social form, more effi
ciently adapted to the needs of
modern America, will emerge
from these ideas in conflict,”
Mr Granger observed.
“Only the unthinking, or the
naively optimistic, would have
expected that this period of so
cial change could have been ef
fected without bitter rancor and
brutality based upon fear,” he
said.
Concerning disorganied youth,
Mr. Granger said, “Too many of
us base corrective planning on
an assumed close relationship
