Title:Letter, Charles and Anna Mantinband to friends; December 1954
Date:1954 Dec.
Description:

From the Mantinband (Rabbi Charles) Papers. Copy of a typewritten newsletter written in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, from Rabbi Charles and Anna Mantinband to friends, dated December 1954. Discusses their efforts to build a Jewish life in the South, the impact of the May 1954 Supreme Court decision (presumably Brown v. Board of Education) in the region, and the various groups formed as a result whose purpose was to enforce segregation. Also mentions the Southern Regional Council, a movement supported by the Mantinbands because it worked outside of the political arena for equal rights.

Electronic version made available through a National Leadership Grant for Libraries from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
