This testimony given by Reginald A. Johnson, Director of Field Services for the National Urban League, addresses the League's effort to help African Americans obtain housing, and its support for the Wagner-Ellender-Taft General Housing Bill. The bill (S 1592) was designed to provide a national housing policy in the aftermath of World War II when housing was scarce, especially for African Americans and other minorities. Because this is a letterpress copy of an original, the text is blurry and can be difficult to read. A transcription is forthcoming.
