Arthur B. Spingarn (1878-1971) was a lawyer and civil rights activist who advocated throughout his career for racial justice in the United States and an end to discrimination against African Americans. He chaired an early form of the legal committee for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and eventually chaired the organization from 1940-1965. He also compiled a significant personal collection of books and ephemera concerning the African-American experience in the United States; his papers include correspondence between the lawyer and civil rights activist and his friends and favorite authors, along with book reviews collected by him relating to this collection of books about African Americans. This digital collection includes one Negro American Labor Council flyer.
