Title

Interracial News Service, vol. 9, no. 2, February 1938

Description

A news digest published by the Department of Race Relations, Federal Council of Churches, New York, NY.

The Federal Council of Churches was an ecumenical association of Protestant denominations in the United States founded in Philadelphia in 1908. It merged with other ecumenical bodies in 1950 to form the present day National Council of Churches. 

Masthead: "Gleanings from press releases and other sources to inform busy but sincere people of some of the things affecting the lives of racial minorities. Let's do away with walls ! 'We are all one in Christ Jesus.'
The Material in the News Service is given for information and is not to be construed as declarations of official attitudes or policies of the Department of Race Relations or the Federal Council of Churches."

Articles summarized include:

p. 1 "The Struggle is Not Over" about a filibuster by Southern Senators against a federal anti-lynching bill.

p. 2 "Red Caps of Three Races Form National Brotherhood" discusses the formation of the International Brotherhood of Red Caps in Chicago.

p. 2 "White Student Group Defies Jim Crow" by inviting African American students to share their special coach "as other white passengers looked on in speechless amazement."

p. 3 "Solid Ranks Against Fascism" regarding an editorial about the Nanking Massacre.

p. 3 "Film Studios Distort Facts About Race, Insists Robeson" includes a quotation from Paul Robeson about his decision to join a work-class theatre group instead of making films.
