Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party

Description

This folder of newspaper clippings follows the MFDP from its plans to challenge the seating of five white Mississippi congressmen at the 1964 Democratic National Convention, through the Credentials Committee fight, to the effort to collect depositions showing that Mississippi African Americans had been systematically prevented from registering to vote through terror and economic intimidation, to the stalling of the MFDP's brief by U.S. Clerk of Court Ralph R. Roberts and the arrest and jailing of several Mississippians who came to Washington, D.C., to inquire about its progress, to a much-quoted statement by an MFDP worker that Mississippi blacks had no stake in the Vietnam War, and then to the defeat of the congressional challenge and the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. In later events, a Republican challenger to Senator Eastland--Prentiss Walker--takes a position even further to the right than Eastland. The 1966 Mississippi state legislature considers paying other states
