The Nation: Fumbling on the New Frontier by MLK

Pages

Abstract

Dr. King elaborates on a report regarding civil rights and the collective efforts with the Kennedy Administration to eradicate racial discrimination. The Executive Orders from President Kennedy are unprecedented as he is attempting to eliminate employment discrimination and has appointed Negroes to key government positions. In an effort not to move "too fast," the President's legislative programs have now commenced a pace that is parallel with the consensus. Dr. King concludes with numerous quotations from prominent leaders discussing the stance and ideologies of the United States.
