Krsanna, you wrote 

What the hey do Theosophical leaders call brotherhood? I wondered.  
How did these apparent cannibals calling themselves a society of 
brotherhood deal with the Civil Rights Movement in America?

Perhaps they didn't involve themselves because they were too busy with their personal agenda. 

I read many years ago that Annie Besant was a suffrajet (could never remember correct spelling)
prior to meeting HPB.

Perhaps it is all part of a natural cycle of events that karmically
is meant to occur.  I have heard it said that the black folk in America were
the rulers in Atlantis and they themselves in other lives embraced slavery
of others.  Their karma now is to endure that which they
perpetuated.  Could be an old wives tale though.

My understanding of the TS in Melbourne is to assist at a personal level without
getting actively involved.

name of brotherhood, mind you -- is what first interested me in 
identifying what Theosophists call brotherhood.  Besant's passive-
aggressive demure when publicly confronted with Judge's defense was 
mind blowing.  When confronted with the complete lack of evidence 
for her claims that Judge had forged letters, Besant publicly stated 
that she didn't mean forgery in the usual sense, i.e., she didn't 
mean he was forging documents per se.  She really meant forgery in a 
different sense.  Judge responded that it would be necessary to view 
the plane of causation to make that judgement call.  Besant backed 
down in public forum then reorganized her attack while 
simultaneously withholding evidence from Judge and providing it to 
others without Judge having the opportunity to see it. Besant was an 
accomplished passive-aggressive.

What did the Mahatmas expect from brotherhood?  How did they define 
brotherhood when desiring to see it among Theosophists?  Why did the 
Mahatmas place brotherhood above practicing the occult?  

My conclusion, by the way, is that asking for brotherhood was the 
best thing the Mahatmas could have done.  By publicly proclaiming 
brotherhood and privately cannibalizing their brothers, the 
perpetrators of passive-aggression create their own noose in a 
karmic sense that will ultimately force them into better 
understanding of brotherhood.  It may take a while.
