In April of 1951 we will celebrate our 75th
Anniversary. From a small group of teachers
who met as a teachers‘ institute, we have
grown to be an outstanding education association.

We have pioneered in many fields, and have
toiled hard to bring about equalization of
educational opportunities at all levels and in
all the ramifications of our State‘s educational
structure, Our toils have been rewarded. Today
we find ourselves at the beginning of an em
greater than our fondest hopes could have ever
expected. Today our opportunities are unlimited.

Now we are face to face with reality. Equali-
mrion is no longer a dream. Integration is well
on its way. Our labors, however, are not ended
—they have just beguniwe must fight to
maintain those things we have worked so hard
to gain. We must prepare ourselves to utilize
our new opportunities to their fullest extent
Our preparations must start today—tomorrow
will be too late. Gains hard won are easily lost.

The membership of the K. N. E, A. must be
leaders in a new era that may be darkened with
misunderstanding and misfortune. We must
cement ourselves together if we are to face this
new era with a united front. We must recognize
the implications of integration. We must inform
not only our children but all the citizenry of
Kentucky that these im lications are not in!
surmoumable, but that t ey can be minimized
and overcome.

Our 75 years of progress will he of no service
to the World mless diat progress is used to
bring about continued success. We cannot stop.
We must use our past experiences to forge
even further ahead.


The Shelbyville Graded School is one of the
latest schools to be completed. Construction
was started in the Fall of 1949 and completed
in the Spring of 1950 at an estimated cost of
$123,000 The building, two and oneahalf stories
high, contains six classrooms, box depository,
and the principals office. The r-afeteria is limited
in the basement. In each of the classrooms
there are steel lockers.

The excellent educational and community
services rendered by the school are made possible
by Mrs. Willa 5. Ray, Superintendent, assisted
by Principal G. R. Williams and his capable
staff of five teachers. Mr. Williams has his
A.B. from K. S. C.


The President’s Letter

November 1, 1950
To the Officers and Members of the
Kentucky Negro Education Association
Ladies and Gentlemen:

As presidentrelect, I am deeply grateful for
the honor you conferred upon me at the close
of the Seventylfourth Session by electing me
without opposition to serve you. It can be truth.
fully said that 1 have worked diligently to help
every administration since I became a member
of the organization I am thoroughly acquainted
with educational problems in Kentucky on
all levels.

The greatest teacher the world has ever
known was Jesus Christ. During His stay upon
this earth there were those who doubted His
sincerity of purpose to help mankind live a
richer and fuller life. There might be some in
our organization similar to those during Jesus'
time, known as the doubting Thomases.

All I ask is flint you give me a chance, and
with your cooperation and the guidance of God,
I will work hard to carry out all the points
mentioned in my announcement.

There is a motto, "United We Stand and
Divided We Fall." It should be uppermost in
the mind of everyone. It is imperative that
every member of this organization ralize the
many responsibilities that confront us. Each one
should remember that this organization can only
go forward in proportion to our contributions
for its good. .

I extend a harty welcome, first to every
oficer of the organization, second to the heads
of the various departments, and third to past
officers, manhers and friends.

Our session, April 11/13, 1951, will be the
75th Anniversary of our organization. It is my
desire to celebrate this as our Diamond Jubilee
Celebration. I am asking each department to be
thinking in terms of building its program in
accordance with the 75 years of progress.

On the 18th of November a program planning
coanence will be held and work begun on dis
Diamond Jubilee Celebntion.

Members of this organimtion from every
section of Kentucky have been called upon to
serve on the various sanding committees.
wish to thank each of you for your acceptaflfle
of these responsibilities.

I welcome criticisms; all 1 ask is that they
come as constructive ones rather than

When the frequently used statement, “I
cannot hold certain positions, I cannot realize my

becomes irrelevant; and is identified wholly
with the past, we must see to it that the safer

and achieve because I am not prepared," does not
loom up in its stead.

"The permanency of educational growth

is assured only through assiduous effort."

American education strives to retain those
landmarks which have proved themselves in
past decades to be a sound philosophy for
democratic living. Ours is a heritage of caution
andncourage, a tantalizing challenge that faces
us a .

The strategy of our educational processes
for maintenance must manipulate itself in soli:
darity. To preserve the glorious history of the
past calls for cooperative effort of all individuals,
all groups, and agencies with pertinent responsie
bilities in our educational program.

With careful scrutiny, ta ping our personal
resources. alerting our mmmfswimhhmrds, and
establishing a psychological front of service in
action, our educational index will reflect desire
able outcomes for a history of which each
American citizen can be justly proud,

“Invested interest for an interesting history,"

Sincerely yours,

I have unlimited faith in the educators of the
Commonwealth of Kentucky. their educational
institutions and organizations. I firmly believe
that the next seventyiive years will see
Kentucky emerge as one of the undisputed leadv
ers in an era of educational democracy.

Let us continue to fight, but while we are
fighting let us prepare ourselves and our children
to maintain those things we have already won.

Sincerely yours,
WILLIAM L SPEARMAN, Secretary'Treasurer

To train leaders you must be a leader. In this
day of strife and turmoil, the youth of Kentucky
must be led rather than directed.

Let us pray that God will give us the strength
and courage to become greater leaders of to,
morrow's citizens

Respectfully yours,

ANITA COOPER RICHARDS, Assistant Secretary

is organized and presents both interesting and
valuable programs with prominent signs of
greater improvements.

The future outlook is good. As fellow edu»
caters, let us combine our efforts and continually
strive for nothing less than the best, Let us
work together to eliminate any existing defi'
ciencies and make this the greatest educational
group in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

efforts of the principals and teachers of Kentucky

Now that integration is becoming a reality, a
great many people are beginning to ask a few
questions about the meaning of integration.
Today, in our thinking, we always begin on
the premise: you must tear down the Negro
project, whatever it is.

I would like to ask a question: in all sincerity,
are we in favor of closing out all Negro news:
papers, insurance companies, law offices, barring
the doors to Negro dentists and doctors and the
closing of all Negro schools, including elemenv
my and high schools?

Any group of people who would deliberately
black'list their own race and institutions does
not deserve to live or to have the respect of other
people. The Englishman, the Frenchman, the
Italian, the Indian, the Japanese, the Chinese,
the Mexican, the Philippine, the German and
the Russian, all seek m maintain with dignity
and grace their racial heritage and selflrespect

We must beware lest the theory of integration
becomes the flame for extinguishing 90 per cent
of all job opportunities for the future educated
Negro. '

I am not opposed to integration, but 1 mnt
integration to take place on both sides of the
fence. I do not want any group to have the final
say about where, when, and what type of
education our children shall have.

The Negro teacher, preacher, doctor, lawyer,
dentist, businessman has done the most marvelr
nus job of any group of persons in the world
when you consider the handicaps involved.

In our haste to criticize we forget the tragic
influence of slavery. We forget the terrible
poverty and misery of the Negro home, the
starvation salary of teachers for gmemtions,
and the time when the only voice that could
be heard in the wilderness of reconstruction
was the voice of the Negro preacher and

We forget the long, weary years of Exploita'
tion when Negro women and men were the
only launderers, the only sunup to sundown
firmers. We also forget the blind alleys into
which millions of our people were led by gullible
idiots who grew fat and rich at the expense of
the poor and ignorant Negro. We forget those
bankrupt Negro organizations that collected
millions of dollars from our poor and gave
them nothing in return except a badge, button,
ribbon, cane or sword which they might
bequeath to their heirs as mementoes of an era
when the blind led the blind and all men were
slaves to a system that meant poverty and
arly death {or all.

As we face our tomorrow, let it not be
without hope. If we must burn tomorrow, let‘s
not fail to get the most out of today. Behind all
our doubts and fairs there an be the unchanging
faith of Evangeline Booth. When someone asked
her if she ever doubted God, she replied: “Yes,
when my mother died after months of suffering
from cancer, I doubted God. When my dear
father went blind and lingered for years, I
doubted God. But," said she, "He wouldn‘t
be much of a God if I could understand Him."

We ran rest assured that truth and justice
will uiumph in die end.

If there are Negro schools now in operation
with good physical plaan or the potentialities
for building a good physical plant, we should
do everything within our power to bring about
integration within that plant. There are any
number of examples to prove that for many
years to come there will be a large number of
Negro students who will find it socially and
economically to their advantage to attend a
college that is made up largely of their own
people. In fact, in any community where there
are Negro and white schools, 1 think some
consideration should be given to the idea of
integrating other races into the Negro schools
as well as integrating Negroes into other schools.

several new school buildings now under con:
