The collection is an accumulation of material and notes which Clarke gathered while working for several civil rights organizations and researching film projects about poverty and racism during the 1960's. There are press releases, leaflets and other printed matter which had been distributed to and by civil rights workers, as well as newspaper and magazine clippings, and Clarke's notes.
The subject matter deals with the Mississippi Summer Project - Council of Federated Organizations, the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, the Selma to Montgomery March in Alabama, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and the Poor People's Campaign and Resurrection City in Washington, D.C. The role of the church and civil rights is also discussed in the collection.
