John A. Davis, N.A.A.C.P., to C. Vann Woodward
As demonstrated in this letter, Woodward was involved in the preparation of the brief for the landmark case, Brown v. Board of Education. This historical support for the N.A.A.C.P.'s position on segregation later became The Strange Career of Jim Crow, the book that Martin Luther King, Jr. called "the Bible of the Civil Rights Movement."
