Abstract: Audio tapes (including listening copies) and related materials chiefly containing radio programs, 1958-1961 and undated, hosted by Gilbert Brooks and sponsored by the Haywood, Ca., chapter of the NAACP. The programs are mostly concerned with the status of African Americans in the mid-20th century; civil rights, education, and employment are among the topics discussed. A few tapes appear to contain interviews with C. L. Dellums of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. Also included are several tapes containing recordings of NAACP meetings and other, perhaps. unrelated, activities.
