Original pictorial wrappers, stapled. Light foxing and soiling at spine edge of front wrapper. Internally clean. Very good. Scarce pamphlet, ostensibly a yearbook for Northern California Branch of the NAACP, but evidently the only issue ever published. It features the decision in and several comments on the 1917 Louisville residential segregation case, Buchanan v. Warley, in which the Supreme Court unanimously ruled the attempts at segregation by the state of Kentucky to be unconstitutional under the Fourteenth Amendment. Moorhead Storey, a founder of the NAACP, pictured on the front wrapper, argued in the case. The pamphlet also includes commentary on race riots in Houston and East St. Louis, a brief roundup of local developments, portraits of officers of the local chapter, and numerous advertisements for African-American businesses in Oakland. OCLC lists copies at seven institutions. ; B&W Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 26 +ads pages
