Description

Detroit: A brief vocal confrontation broke out in the hallway of Cobo Hall 7/3 during the NAACP annual national convention when Edmund Muses (far right), a delegate, took Jack Robinson, 42-year-old black president of the NAACP's Boston branch, to task for his resolution calling for a black NAACP president. Kivie Kaplan (center), the 68-year-old white present NAACP president, listens to the exchange. Robinson was prohibited from circulating his resolution on the convention floor. Man next to Robinson (second from left) is unidentified reporter.
