|Title:||Memo, John Morsell to the President of the Branches, youth councils, college chapters, and state conferences; March 22, 1965|
|Date:||1965 Mar. 22|
From the Miller (Michael J.) Civil Rights Collection; This memorandum on the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) letterhead from John Morsell to the presidents of branches, youth councils, college chapters and state conferences explains the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party's (MFDP) Congressional challenge and discusses the NAACP's position on the challenge. The document makes it very clear that the NAACP does not authorize any fund-raising for the Congressional challenge or agree with the methods through which it hopes to unseat the Mississippi Congressmen.
