The NAACP Real World Guide to Interacting with Law Enforcement

Far too often, the "war on crime" fought by police on the streets is waged against innocent individuals unaware of, or intimidated into surrendering, their constitutional rights. While we must support effective law enforcement, we must also exercise our constitutional rights to ensure law enforcement works as it should - to protect all Americans regardless of race or ethnicity. This guide offers helpful suggestions on how to interact with law enforcement to reduce the probability of conflict.

Arkansas State Conference History

Daisy Bates (1914-1999) served as President, Arkansas State Conference, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, from 1952 to 1959. She is best known for her involvement in the struggle to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Mrs. Bates was an advisor to the nine black students (The Little Rock Nine) trying to attend the previously all-white school. Among her other accomplishments she was a publisher, with husband L. C. Bates, of the Arkansas State Press newspaper (1942-87).
