This information comes from a newspaper article titled "Famer: Civil Rights to Be an Issue Indefinitely." In this article, James Farmer, a former national director of the Congress of Racial Equity, talks about civil rights issue. Farmer is giving his speech at the University of Scranton Student Center. One of the most interesting facts that the article reveals is that Student Council Lecture Series Committee funded him. Famer is well-known for his support of racial equality, and that is on full display in the speech he delivers. In particular, he talks about how the civil rights movement has become less significant, due to other important events such as the Vietnam War. Additionally, the state of transition has played a big role as well. Farmer comments on how violence and rioting will continue on until "African Americans" are treated better. Following this, he discusses the legislation that has passed over the years, but that more needs to be done for them to be truly effective.

It talks about two students, Luke Shanley and Michael McCloskey, who are discussing the process of civil rights at the Chamber of Commerce.

Apart from this, they mention how lack of objectivity from the newspaper has been a huge disadvantage for Black Americans.
