From the Hamlett (Ed) White Folks Project Collection. This newsletter contains six pages of text, largely edited by Eric Blanchard, and ten photographs by Ken Thompson. The newsletter explains the history of voting in Mississippi, the voter registration movements underway in 1964, and the proposed Voting Rights Bill of 1965. A large portion of the content details the progress of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP) in challenging the seats of five Mississippi congressmen.
