Warning: Don’t Buy Negro Records

The other day on Facebook, I noticed a repost of an upload. The upload was a poster warning people not to buy Negro records. Of course, this is a relic from the past. Carl Davidison, editor of Changemaker Press, was the original uploader. Carl Davidson was once the student leader of the leftist organization New Left. The poster itself was created by Citizens Council of Greater New Orleans, a chapter of the anti-integration White Citizens Council. Created in the 1950’s, White Citizens Council existed mostly in the South. After dying out in the 1970’s, the group reformed as Council of Conservative Citizens.
