I. Maximilian Martin Jr.

In his two 1984 and 1987 oral history interviews, Isadore Maximilian Martin Jr. (1910-1992) recounts his family's move from Enfield, North Carolina, to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1913.  There, his father Isadore Martin Sr. became a successful realtor, civic leader, and president of the Philadelphia branch of the N.A.A.C.P. Martin also speaks about his own life, including his education, work as a realtor, and his work with the N.A.A.C.P. for passage of the Pennsylvania Equal Rights Bill of 1935 and the campaign to integrate Philadelphia's movie theaters and hotels in the 1930s.
