From the Dahl (Kathleen) Freedom Summer Collection.

A federal program, the ASCS allowed rural Mississippi farmers to act as administrators in their local agricultural communities. Walker describes incidents of discrimination during the election process in these communities and urges examination of election results. She also typed a personal note to Kathy (Dahl) at the end of the report.
