“To Fulfill their Rights” published by the White House

June 2, 1962

“To Fulfill their Rights” published by the White House. This pamphlet, which plays on an earlier conference called “To Ensure Their Rights” documents the speeches that occurred at the white house in June of 1966, when groups from around the U.S. came together to come up with policy recommendations. The recommendations are perhaps not surprising: increase quality of education, and enforce rights that have already been guaranteed by law. What may be more surprising is that the NAACP boycotted this conference, and are thus not represented in the pamphlet.
