|Title:||Administration of justice in Mississippi : a report of the Mississippi Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights; January 1963 | Report of the Mississippi Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights|
From the Ben-Ami (Rabbi David Z.) Papers. This report by the Mississippi Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights describes the committee's procedures and lists its members, but it focuses mainly on the allegations of police brutality and obstruction of justice by state officials. Committee members cite cases of police misconduct and violence and note that their research has been hindered by governmental officials. Committee members also report on intimidation, threats, and violence encountered as a result of their position on the committee.
