Of particular interest are Barnes' files relating to the Child Development Group of Mississippi and Freedom City. The Child Development Group of Mississippi, administered by Mary Holmes Junior College, was Mississippi's first and the nation's largest Head Start program. The materials document the organization, development, and administration of the Child Development Group of Mississippi including information on financial fraud, teacher and student evaluations, and appraisers' reports. Materials pertaining to Freedom City document the development of Freedom City, Freedom Village, and Freedom Crafts to provide the Delta Opportunities Corporation of the Delta Ministries income for displaced farm families in Washington County.
