National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The Search for Military Justice: Report of an NAACP Inquiry into the Problem of the Negro Serviceman in West Germany. New York: NAACP Special Contribution Fund, 1971.

OCLC Accession No.: 28351450

NAACP representatives conducted a tour of military bases in West Germany in the early 1970's and consequently issued this report. They found that to a large extent discrimination both on and off base was taking place despite President Kennedy's Executive Order that was supposed to eliminate such discrimination. It was becoming clear that institutionalized racism affected African-American veterans domestically, internationally, and within and outside of the military community.
