Title

Interracial News Service, vol. 10, no. 6, December, 1939

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."  

This issue contains numerous stories regarding efforts by African Americans to secure equal treatment in educational opportunity. One item reports the removal of "Little Black Sambo" from San Diego, Ca. kindergartens.

There are also notices regarding issues of race and various Christian denominations. Other stories concern relief sent to Native Americans in areas hit by drought, the hiring of M. Leo Bohanon to the position of Director of Social Work in Minneapolis, Mn., and a story about the adoption of black children evacuated from London [in "Operation Pied Piper"] and the surprise they carried.
