Creator:Committee of Concern (Jackson, Miss.)
Title:Beauty for ashes; [1964]

From the Ben-Ami (Rabbi David Z.) Papers. The pamphlet explains that the Committee of Concern, chaired by William P. Davis, is an interracial, interfaith group with the goal of raising and managing funds and equipment to rebuild burned churches in the Hattiesburg area. A photograph on the front cover of the pamphlet shows the remains of a burned church, and an excerpt from Isaiah 61 is printed on the second page.

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