by Association of Citizens' Councils of MississippiGeorgia Commission on Education (circa 1954 – 1957)

1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

The Pro-Segregation pamphlets include 9 pamphlets published in the 1950s that supported racial segregation. Eight are from the Citizens' Council (of Greenwood, Mississippi) and one is from the Georgia Commission on Education. These pamphlets were used to rally public and political resistance against the Supreme Court's 1954 ruling on school segregation. The Citizens' Council encouraged resistance to integration through legal means and education through propaganda like these pamphlets rather than through physical and violent actions like those of the Ku Klux Klan.
