"We are launching a new organization based on the common trade interests of all negro and White professionals and students. We stand for full equality for the Negro people, and we particularly hope to combat all defense of oppression and segregation in cultural and professional spheres. We believe that full equality of the Negro people cannot be reached by the submissiveness and inactivity of the methods of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, but by bolder, more effective and more strategic methods." States that the group plans to begin publishing a magazine; the dance is a fundraiser featuring numbers from the Juilliard String Quartet and a Harlem jazz band.
