PHILADELPHIA WORKS FOR INTEGRATION.
MEEK, SYLVIA
IT IS SUGGESTED THAT PHILADELPHIA HAS NOW ENTERED THE SECOND PHASE OF THE INTEGRATION MOVEMENT. NOW THAT THE SCHOOL BOARD AND A RESPONSIBLE SEGMENT OF THE COMMUNITY ARE FOR INTEGRATION, THE ACT OF INTEGRATION IS OF PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE. A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT IN PHILADELPHIA IS OUTLINED. ONE PART OF THE MOVEMENT DEALT WITH THE BROAD ISSUES OF PUBLIC EDUCATION, THE METHOD OF SCHOOL BOARD SELECTION AND TAXING POWER. THE OTHER PART DEALT WITH THE SO-CALLED NARROW ISSUES, SEGREGATION AND DISCRIMINATION. THROUGH THE EFFORTS OF THE NAACP, CORE, AND INTERESTED CITIZENS, DEMANDS FOR INTEGRATION AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS BROUGHT ABOUT THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A COMMISSION ON INTEGRATION. EVENTUALLY THE COMMISSION HELPED TO ENCOURAGE GREATER PUBLIC AWARENESS AND SUPPORT FOR INTEGRATION, AND TO INVOLVE MORE COMMUNITY GROUPS IN THE ISSUE.
