Title: The Texas Commission on Inter-Racial Co-operation brochure
Abstract: The Texas Commission on Inter-Racial Co-operation was introduced into Texas from Georgia in the spring of 1920. The movement had its origin in an effort to alleviate conditions which rose in the South during the demobilization of the U. S. army following WWI. The feeling of suspicion and distrust which prevailed at that time was evident among the Negroes who felt that their participation in the struggle "to make the world safe for democracy" had brought to their race few, if any, of the benefits for which American soldiers, both white and colored, had made the supreme sacrifice. (From the Origin section of the Texas Commission on Inter-Racial Co-operation brochure.)
Description: A brochure of the Texas Commission on Inter-Racial Co-operation from 1920-1940. The brochure outlines the origin and achievements of the commission.
