Now, as the San Francisco Bay View newspaper’s 40th birthday year comes to a close, is the time to bring up to date the historical sketch of our paper that I began with Part 1 in the January paper.

For true self-determination, we must each play our part. If you are not a member of the NAACP, consider becoming one.

Do your part to support an organization that has sustained us and defended us for so long.
