Title:Preliminary proposal for the establishment of Mississippi Freedom Corps; [n.d.]
Date:1960-1969
Description:

From the Miller (Michael J.) Civil Rights Collection; The proposal puts forth the idea of a "Freedom Corps" made up of young volunteers who would like to live in Mississippi for an extended period of time and participate in civil rights activities there. The proposal outlines recruitment procedures, training procedures, housing possibilities, and other infrastructure that would be included in developing a "Freedom Corps." It notes that the program will be administered by the Delta Ministry of Mississippi, but its volunteers will also cooperate with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), the Council of Federated Organizations (COFO), and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Electronic version made available through a National Leadership Grant for Libraries from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
