Subject

NAACP secretary denounces state litigation against organization.

Description

NAACP executive secretary Roy Wilson spoke to the Board of Directors at their annual meeting in January of 1957. The following transcript of that meeting in the NAACP Papers shows him discussing litigation against the NAACP in Louisiana, Alabama, and Texas, saying it is a violation of civil liberties. At this time, the Texas v. NAACP case in Tyler was at a standstill as Judge Otis T. Dunagan delayed the trial until April. The NAACP in Texas wasn't the only facet of the organization under fire from state governments.
