Carolina Israelite

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines the new role that Harry Golden and the Carolina Israelite obtained as Golden continued to express his anti-discriminatory views: as a transplant intrigued by southerners, both Gentiles and Jews, and as an observer of the national scene and the changing attitudes about race issues. Due to his increased popularity, his essays started to appear in different outlets, such as the Congress Bi-Weekly, which serves as the house organ of the American Jewish Congress. The chapter also explores Golden’s involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, describing his interactions with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and with A. Philip Randolph, founder of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters and an influential African American activist. During this time, Golden also became a member of both the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) and the Fellowship of Reconciliation, two groups that fought against racial discrimination.
