Description

The yearbook page for the Fellowship of Faiths (FOF) also discusses the efforts of the Civil Actions Group, an unofficial sub-group of the large interfaith organization on campus at the time. Both groups worked together on a tutorial program in Holyoke, and the FOF held a Campus Conference on Civil Rights, focussing on the subtle nature of racial discrimination in the North. Whitney Young, pictured at the bottom of the page on the left, was the executive director of the National Urban League, a community-based organization dedicated to ending racial discrimination, gave a lecture at the conference.
