The N.A.A.C.P. has secured the best legal talent in the country to defend the colored men accused of murder in the East St. Louis race riots and to prevent the responsibility and blame for that horror being placed upon the American Negro.

In this case the race is on trial. Help to win it by joining the N.A.A.C.P. today.
