Birmingham Reporter Social Service plan

Identifier: AC-660

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of an original typescript, carbon copy three-page document captioned "Prospective Program of the Birmingham Reporter and Special Committee on Welfare and Social Service Works," dated circa 1920s.

From the dealer's description: Outline of a program designed by the "Editor and Manager of The Reporter together with a few substantial friends, in the interest of humanity, the Negro race, capital, and labor." The program would work toward producing satisfied workmen by bringing the African American laborer together with common sense leadership of his own race and disassociating from unions.
