United Nations Body Plans Worldwide Drive to Combat Racial Prejudice

Download PDF for this date

A campaign to combat racial prejudice is among the proposals for the 1950 program of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), submitted by the director-general in connection with the fourth session of the group’s general conference opening here on Monday.

The proposal to fight prejudice calls for a definition by experts of racial problems in order to determine the major forms of misconceptions and methods for com-batting them. A series of pamphlets would then be issued and, with the scientific facts thus available, a campaign of popular enlightenment could be undertaken.
