Abstract 

The author describes the "retreat" of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) as a result of legal challenges by Southern law courts, along with the desire to maintain movement leaders' status and the liberal government's approval, at the expense of the local population's troubles and needs.  The main case the author referred to was "CITY OF JACKSON VS. JOHN R. SALTER, JR., ET. AL.," an injunction against any act of protest or even social gathering.  The author described the serving of the injunction to himself and others at Tougaloo Southern Christian College, and the efforts made to avoid being served.
