NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF COLORED PEOPLE President MOORFIELD STOREY Secretary JOHN R. SHILLADY Chairman Board of Directors MARY WHITE OVINGTON Director of Publications and Research DR. W. E. B. DuBOIS Acting Treasurer MAJOR J. E. SPINGARN Field Secretary JAMES WELDON JOHNSON Assistant Secretary WALTER F. WHITE DO YOU BELIEVE That the Negro should be free from the ever-present danger of mob murder? DO YOU BELIEVE That he should be allowed to exercise his constitutional right to vote? DO YOU BELIEVE That he should be given the same accommodations as other citizens on railroad trains -- free from the detested and detestable "Jim-Crow" cars? DO YOU BELIEVE That he should be emancipated from the consistent exploitation through which he is robbed of millions of dollars annually by means of the credit-system practiced in southern states? DO YOU BELIEVE That he should be give a fair and equal apportionment of school funds derived from public taxes to which he contributes at the same rate as the white? DO YOU BELIEVE, IN SHORT, THAT DEMOCRACY SHOULD APPLY TO THE COLORED MAN AS WELL AS TO ALL OTHERS? If so, then you should be a member of the organization that is fighting for democracy and all that that word implies for the Negro: THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF COLORED PEOPLE We are working towards a goal of 100,000 members. June first we numbered 57,000. Will you be one of those who will help us reach our objective by becoming a member yourself and securing as many others as you can?
