Abstract:

Papers of Amzie Moore, a black civil rights activist in Mississippi, who was also a leader in church, civic, and social activities in and around Cleveland, Mississippi.

Correspondence and organizational records, which together comprise 7 boxes, pertain to Moore's position as local director or organizer for all federal anti-poverty programs in Cleveland and Bolivar County and with many civil rights groups, among them the Bolivar County Community Action program, the Child Development Group of Mississippi and its affiliate, Head Start, and the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The remainder consists of subject files that contain affidavits of discriminatory treatment, statements of financial need, lists, and other printed matter that reveal Moore's work as an advocate of the illiterate poor in the county. Financial records include fragmentary documentation of his diverse business interests. On tape are interviews conducted by Moore with local black residents and civil rights workers and some examples of gospel music.

The processed portion is summarized above and is described in the register. Additional photographic accessions are described below.
