Description

The Christian World Educational Conference, also known as Education Week, which was sponsored by the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA), came to a close after two days of educational sessions. One of the four main focuses of the conference was discussing race relations. R.B. Eleazer of the Commission on Interracial Co-operation spoke about race relations and the problems America faced. Eleazer deplored the animosity betweens whites and the "colored races" and also highlighted the endeavors, especially in the South, to bring more understanding between whites and people of color.
