Civil rights; Black history
New York: Roy Wilkins, executive director of the 460,000-member National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), is interviewed in his New York office recently. Wilkins, speaking on the dire predictions of a long hot summer" of racial unrest, says all the ingredients are there but he doesn't believe it will happen. Wilkins, 65, denounced in strong terms the efforts of some civil rights leaders to link their organizations with the "get-out-of-Vietnam" peace drives.
