Todd received two honorary doctorates in law and literature. He was honored by the National Association of Colored Women and Time Magazine. Additionally he was placed twice on the Afro-American and the Pittsburgh courier newspaper yearly honor rolls for outstanding contributions in the cause of true democracy and harmonies race relations. Todd was feted at three testimonial dinners and travelled to Europe and Africa as the guest of the Government of Nigeria.

Tomlinson D. Todd is credited with the discovery, unearthing and publicizing of the "lost laws" of 1872 and 1873, which prohibited restaurants from denying service because of race, and under which were filed charges that led to early restaurant desegregation in the 1950's.

He was president of the Institute on Race Relations, president and founder of Club Internationale, Inc., member of the Capital Press Club, the National Press Club, The Pigskin Club of Washington, D.C., and the Washington Urban League, a civic leader and exponent of true democracy for all Americans, officer of the Pleasant Plains Civic Association, and served as Associate Editor of the Progressive Consumer magazine. Dr. Todd met six United States presidents: John F. Kennedy, with whom he guested at the White House; Lyndon Baines Johnson; Richard Milhous Nixon; Ronald Reagan; Gerald Ford; and Harry S. Truman, who was a member of the Club Internationale. Dr. Todd's work also brought him in contact with other public figures, including Gene Kelly, Henry Fonda, Walter Pigeon, Orson Welles, Humphrey Bogart, Judy Holliday, Lillian and Dorothy Gish, Lauren Bacall, Lena Home, Bob Hope, Harry Belafonte, and Charles Laughton.

Summary:
This collection of New NegroOpinion newspapers spans from December 16, 1933 to April 18, 1935, and measures 1.67 linear feet. The Washington, DC-based paper was published weekly by the New Negro Alliance, which was established in 1933 by John Aubrey Davis, Belford V. Lawson, and M. Franklin Thorne to protest discrimination in employment practices in stores doing business in black neighborhoods. William H. Hastie, the first African American federal judge served as the assistant editor and a columnist for the weekly.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into two series.

Series 1: December 1933 - December 1934

Series 2: January 1935-April 1935
Biographical / Historical:
John Aubrey Davis, Belford V. Lawson, and M. Franklin Thorne established the New Negro Alliance in 1933 to protest discrimination in employment practices in stores doing business in black neighborhoods. On August 28th of that year, the manager of the Hamburger Grill on U Street in the District of Columbia fired his all black staff and replaced them with whites. Black customers, led by Washingtonian John Aubrey Davis maintain a boycott and picketed until the manager relented and brought the black workers back—with an increase in pay and a reduction in hours.

After the Hamburger Grill, their campaigns targeted the A&P grocery stores, the High Ice Cream Company, Peoples Drug Store, Kaufman's Department Store, and finally, the Sanitary Grocery Company (later Safeway grocery stores)—which led them all the way to the Supreme Court. Mary Church Terrell, Mary McLeod Bethune, and many other prominent black Washingtonians joined the picket lines. Walter E. Washington, later the first black mayor of the city, Eugene Davidson (later head of the D.C. NAACP), Howard University professor N. Naylor Fitzhugh, John Aubrey Davis, attorney Belford V. Lawson, Jr., M. Franklin Thorne (later manager of Langston Terrace housing project), R. Grayson McGuire (owner of the McGuire family funeral homes), and Robert C. Weaver were among the leaders of the New Negro Alliance.

The organization's tactics were unique. The Alliance conducted survey research in the neighborhoods surrounding a retail store that did not hire black employees. They then shared their research findings with the store managers, and requested that hiring policies be changed to hire the same percentage of black employees as there were customers. If the store refused, the Alliance would begin a community education campaign, distributing literature that explained their demands. Finally, if the store still refused to meet their demands they would organize a picket line and a boycott of the store by all those who supported an end to the exclusion of black employees.
