Subjects documented include Terry's participation in sit-ins organized by the Chicago chapter of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), her involvement in planning the Southern Christian Leadership Conference's (SCLC) Poor People's Campaign in Washington, D.C., in 1968 as a member of the event's steering committee, and her work for JOIN Community Union in assisting poor white southerners who had migrated to Chicago from Appalachia. Also documented is her opposition to the Vietnam War and her Vice Presidential campaign as Eldridge Cleaver's running-mate on the Peace and Freedom Party ticket in the 1968 Presidential election.
