From the Miller (Michael J.) Civil Rights Collection; Appendix C explains the history and platform of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP), lists the executive committee members, and sets out a plan for the Congressional challenge. Appendix D lists states in which the State Democratic Conventions adopted resolutions to support the MFDP cause and gives samples of some of these resolutions. Appendix E discusses voting qualifications in Mississippi. It also gives African American voter registration statistics for each county and district. Appendix E also includes a sample "freedom ballot" that will be used in the MFDP's Freedom Election. Appendix F uses excerpts from the "Platform and Principles of the Mississippi State Democratic Party" (1960 version) and Paul B. Johnson's campaign literature to demonstrate the position of the Mississippi State Democratic Party.
