Talks ‘Amicable,’ NAACP Boss Says

A round of fact-finding meetings with management, studios, guilds and unions has convinced the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People that the industry recognizes the need for more progress in minority hiring practices.

That view was offered Feb. 5 by Dr. William Gibson, national chairman of the NAACP. Gibson headed a task force that spent four days in Hollywood, ending Feb. 4, gathering information for a new set of recommendations the NAACP will seek to implement after its July convention in Houston. “I would characterize the initial meetings as amenable, amicable and open,” he said.
