Southern School News-October 1956

Subject

NAACP Ouster effort and college integration mark Texas month.

Description

In Tyler, the initial highlight of the court fight was the disclosure of the NAACP contract to pay $11,500 to Heman Sweatt. District Judge Otis T. Dunagan granted a temporary restraining order/injunction against the NAACP after Attorney General Shepperd brought suit against the NAACP. Shepperd claimed that the NAACP was a corporation based in New York and did not have a permit to operate in Texas. He also argued that the NAACP was violating barratry laws. Thurgood Marshall, NAACP chief council, called this "the greatest crisis" in the organization's history.
