Review of Causes Which Led to the Organization of the Association In New York and What Its Policy Will Be —Career and Work of Professor W. E. B. Du Bois. By FRANKLIN F. JOHNSON. Tin* problem of adjusting the differ ed vs between the heterogeneous masses in the United States so that each man will enjoy equality before the law and equality of opportunity for himself and his children has agi tated the minds of statesmen oft and on since 1770. The overthrow of England’s sover eignty in the United States and the establishment of a democratic form of government was the first. The exist ence of slavery, the agitation against it and its final extinction was another step in the recognition of the brother hood of man. The enfranchisement of the Negro and the abrogation of many of the laws preventing the Negro from fol lowing various fields of activity were steps in recognition of the principles of democracy. The di- r ’ tchisement laws, Jim crow measures, restricted school facil ities for the race, are efforts to undo the start made for the extension to all of what many are pleased to term “Jeffersonian principles.” With the curtailment of the rights of the Negro and a steadily growing race consciousness as well as knowl edge of public affairs and the growing economic independence of the race has come the conviction that the spir it of democratic principles is no less for the colored man than for the white. A number of white and colored men, all firm believers in the principles of democracy and strong opposers to all temporizing with social prejudices and its manifestation in discriminat ing laws, have organized the National Association For the Advancement of Colored People, with offices in the Evening Post building, 20 Vesey street, New York. The need of such an association /.an THE STATESMAN, DENVER. COLORADO. W. R. B. DU BOIS, PH. D. be best gleaned from an address which j one of Its leading promoters, Oswald, Garrison Villard, editor of the New! York Evening Post, delivered at the recent meeting in New York of tho! National Negro Business league. Said 1 Mr. Villard: ‘•My friends of the Business league, | do not let the historian of the future 1 say that in this money making age the colored American became so engross ed i 7 ' the accumulation of means and the establishment of business as to | forget those higher things without ; which he cannot hope to succeed and rise to great usefulness, to be really worthy of his heritage of American I citizenship. “Do not forget that, while every ef fort must be spent In fortifying our selves In every community by busi ness and material success, equal effort must be devoted to that of far greater | movement, the insistence upon tho Negro’s equal and political rights in every place and at all times. “Anything short of absolute equality before the law is slaver}’. “My friends, this republic cannot ex Ist half slave, half free, any more to day than it could In the time of Abra ham Lincoln.” Dr. W. E. B. Du Bois, the eminent authority on racial questions, has been engaged as secretary of the associa tion. Professor Du Bois is a native of Massachusetts.
