Jewish Aid to Civil Rights
Lauded Before NAACP

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Jewish
organizations were lauded by Roy
Wilkins, executive secretary of the
National Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People, for
their work toward passage of the
Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Wilkins said in an address be-
fore the 55th annual NAACP con-
vention that "many hands and
minds and hearts brought victory."
He singled out Jewish organiza-
tions, working under the banner
of the leadership conference on
civil rights, for special credit along
with national Negro, labor, church,
fraternal, and women's organiza-
tions.
His speech generally stressed the
cooperation of many American ele-
ments to advance the civil rights of
Negroes.
