The increase of black participation has brought the dawning
of a new day for southern politics. Many white officials in this
region owe their positions as governors, state legislators, mayors,
and other offices to the recently-registered black electorate.
Demagogues of the past are now trying hard to acquire a new public
image because they recognize the potential of the minority vote. /P3

It is clear that the Voting Rights Act and efforts to increase
minority political participation have had a measure of success,
but there remains, in 1975, perhaps a greater need than ever to
insure permanent protection of minority voting rights.

Black voter registration is up from 1965, but
, there are still
more than two and one-half million blacks yet unregistered
in the 11 sourthern states.
