Mr. and Mrs. Leader. The youth of the nation call upon you to act in the interest of their freedom. They cannot keep faith with your deep concern over un-American activities which stalls with Communism and ends with a denunciation of everything: progressive, such as that promulgated by Henry Wallace and the Independent Progressive Party. They read the story of 16-year-old Edwina Johnson and her brother Marshall, 15, who made a trip south and learned the hard way that things are different in Alabama than they are in Newark. X. J. Edwina and Marshall violated the Alabama State segregation laws when they refused to take a rear seat on a city bus in Montgomery. The two New Jersey children were hauled into court where young Marshall told the . Alabama judge that the bu driver, S. L. Law', kicked his sister off the bus when she was hesitant about leaving. Presiding Judge Wiley ignored the boys testimony and told him that These are the kind of things that cause trouble. I dont know the law' where you carw from, and I dont care. You violated the law of Alabama. Its a good law. and I am in favor of it. And regardless of your feelings, you are going to abide by it. After a tongue-lashing the two children were paroled to their father, Edward Johnson, of Newark, who had come to their aid, and they were hustled back to their home in New Jersey. This sort of thing reminds me that Negro leaders who have loads of criticism for Robeson, who stands against such atrocities against the American youth if he happens to be of Negro extraction, have nothing to say for .themselves when such crimes are committed. I ask you, who claim to be the leaders of our Negro people, who can get columns of space in almost : every newspaper and reactionary magazine in the country, when you speak commisseratingly of offenses such : as these, when you speak at all, I ask you how much j space can you or anyone else get when reporting such conduct and condemning both judge and bus driver? But then here is the other side of the picture, a side which shows the youth all over the country, Negro and - TTw.T'rmwr white, rising up and are uniting against dicrimination, : 1 HI K( ) 1 I XI I I V segregation, and all the other atrocities that have been - J v-1yX1vX 1 y X X X committed against the Negro race in the name of neces- t. . - T sity and compromise. iDFSlnF S ASSTIKAiVi K Recently in North Carolina a student committee de- ilkJU Ullii cided to ask the University of North Carolina's trustees: r -r TTTnTn to admit a Negro student to a school. rntlXl Fill Il,h I.HIhh If that move fails, it was decided at a meeting- v-JjXvXJ VjXXXXjX sponsored by the Non-Partisan Committee for Harold j Epps. the matter will be taken to court.
