From the Ellin (Joseph and Nancy) Freedom Summer Collection; Memo from Betty Garman (Robinson), Atlanta SNCC office, to friends of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and campus contacts, dated October 28, 1964. Garman reports that the eighteen people jailed in McComb, Mississippi - voter registration workers and prospective applicants - have been released and all charges against them dropped. Five of those jailed reported some form of physical abuse while in jail. FBI officials were present in McComb, but reported to be inactive. Garman urges the formation of protest campaigns to inform others of this situation.
