Abstract:

The series consists of files of Wyatt T. Walker as executive director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) from 1952, 1960-1964. The correspondence (chronological) concerns donations to SCLC, notices of meetings, speaking engagements, desegregation of two restaurants in Atlanta (Ga.), abolition of the House Un-American Activities Committee, a meeting with Robert F. Kennedy to discuss voter irregularities in the South, and alleged racial prejudice in a U.S. Army court martial. The correspondence (alphabetical) includes files relating to alleged discrimination at Atlantic Steel Company and Hunt Foods, Inc.; Walker's efforts to help Carl Braden who was jailed on conspiracy charges; extensive correspondence with William M. Kunstler regarding Monroe (N.C.) defendants; civil rights demonstrations; Freedom Rides litigation; and correspondence relating to cooperation between the SCLC, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and the Southern Conference Educational Fund.

The subject files contain two speeches by James R. Hoffa regarding racial discrimination, memoranda, and nine speeches and sermons delivered by Walker.
