Title:Proposal for a skills training program; [n.d.]

From the Miller (Michael J.) Civil Rights Collection; The proposal explains plans for a Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) sponsored project to teach young people (particularly African Americans) skills that will help them to find employment in the printing and publishing industry. The program was designed to teach trainees skills in the subject areas of type-setting, layout, lithography, photography, and printing over a span of eight months. The trainees would also receive four months experience working on SNCC printing and publicity projects. The proposal discusses facilities and equipment already in place for the project and presents a budget and list of equipment needed to fulfill the plan.
