Discusses a movement to rid Mississippi of all civil rights workers and civil rights activities. Cites the state government as having possible connections with anti-civil rights activities, and suggests that the State Sovereignty Commission, the state National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Washington Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO), and Sargent Shriver of the OEO are working to close down the Child Development Group of Mississippi (CDGM).
