- From the Ellin (Joseph and Nancy) Freedom Summer Collection; News release by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), dated May 26, 1964, and titled "Whites Organize to Oppose Mississippi Summer Project." Statement warns those participating in the summer project of the increase in white supremacist organizations in Mississippi as well as acts of violence by such groups, like the Ku Klux Klan. Civil rights workers coming to Mississippi should expect more organized opposition than originally anticipated.
