Creator:Congress of Racial Equality
Title:CORE-lator, no. 108; October 1964
Date:1964 Oct.

From the Ellin (Joseph and Nancy) Freedom Summer Collection; September-October issue of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) bi-monthly newsletter, the Core-Lator. Issue number 108 features an article about a round-the-clock silent vigil supporting the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP) delegation to the Democratic National Convention held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in August 1964. A photograph on the front page shows supporters carrying placards of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner, three civil rights workers who were murdered near Philadelphia, Mississippi. Another story discusses the first Freedom Day held in Philadelphia. Also includes an article about the discovery of the dead body of a 14 year-old African-American boy in the Big Black River in Canton, Mississippi.

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