Abstract:

The collection consists of publication materials, personal and family materials, and audio recordings. Drafts, notes, correspondence, interviews, photographs, and other materials are related to Tyson's publications "Blood Done Sign My Name" (2004), a personal history about a racial murder in Oxford, N.C., in 1970; "Radio Free Dixie: Robert F. Williams and the Roots of Black Power" (1999); and his master's thesis, "Burning for Freedom" (1990), also about race and Oxford, N.C. Some items relate to the Reverend Vernon Tyson, civil rights activist and Tim Tyson's father; Eddie McCoy, Oxford civil rights activist; and writer Thad Stem. Personal and family materials include correspondence, a journal, clippings, and other materials related to the Tyson family. Audio recordings are mainly of oral history interviews centering on race relations. Among those interviewed are Eddie McCoy, Ben Chavis and other Chavis family members, Golden Frinks, and Bobby Seale. Some of the interviews were conducted by Larry Thomas. The Addition of November 2012 contains notes made by prosecutor Jay Stroud relating to jury selection and other matters; motions, affadavits, indictments, and other legal documents; clippings; and printed materials relating to the trial of the members of the Wilmington Ten. There is also a draft of remarks made by Tim Tyson at a press conference concerning the trial materials in December 2012 in Chapel Hill, N.C.
