New Trends in the Civil Rights Struggle November 22, 1964

James Farmer, November 22, 1964

“The civil rights revolution is not complete. The Kennedy administration had served as a catalyst to thrust civil rights forward.”

“The Civil Rights Act is a toll with which to work. Now, dejure segregation in the South will soon become do facto segregation such as the North possesses.”

“With the aid of the Johnson administration, I foresee a massive remedial education program in the South for both whites and Negroes. There is a need for quality education through junior colleges. I see a renaissance [in my race] in art, culture, literature, and music.”

“The economic changes will come through a pooling of resources to start cooperatives and credit unions. The strife for freedom that my people are pursuing involves a freedom to make a meaningful choice in society.”
