Abstract:

Presents a snapshot of the creation of the Fund, one of the first bi-racial organizations in the South. The history of the North Carolina Fund encompasses 5 years of innovative and experimental actions, which also proved to be quite controversial. The NC Fund encouraged communities around the state to create local agencies called Community action Programs (CAPS), whose agendas would have to include input from low income people. The Fund gave a voice to people who had been disenfranchised, and in turn empowered them to make substantial changes in their lives and communities.
