"Army Aide Urges Race Awareness."
New York Times, October 14, 1969. P. 21.
"Formerly [African-Americans] countered acts of racial discrimination with hard work and
endurance. Today [they are] more likely to make [their] resentment known." So said Stanley R.
Resor, Secretary of the Army during a speech to the 15th annual meeting of the Association of
the United States Army. He called on commanders to "search out and eliminate conditions which
could lead to racial tensions," such as an understanding and even acceptance of Black Power
salutes, Afro haircuts, and other forms of expression.
