Beginning in the Forties short columns like the one seen to the right here began appearing on the pages of the nation's magazine and newspapers - snippets of text that indicated that the American people (ie. Whites) were slowly catching on to the system of racial injustice that they had inherited - and wondering aloud about the tyranny of it all:

Our hats are off to one Naomi Charner, who, in 1947, made the a heroic stand and resigned her post as vice-president of her sorority after it had refused to admit an applicant on purely racial grounds. Miss Charner, in the company of eight other co-eds, then proceeded to establish Delta Beta Delta on the Upsala campus, a sorority with far "lower" admission standards. The article concludes by making mention of a White girl who, some months earlier, was admitted to an all Black sorority in California.

More on the topic can be read on this website.
