- From the Miller (Michael J.) Civil Rights Collection; The memo from Anne Braden to the Southern Student Organizing Committee discusses approaches to Civil Rights organizing in the South. Braden feels that white students should work at organizing poor white southerners, and that African American students should organize African American communities. She also notes that organizing in the white community means convincing poor white southerners that they need to team up with African American organizations in order to fight economic oppression.
