Brochure, "Mississippi Boycott Manual," 1965

Summary

Allies of desegregation could support the civil rights movement by boycotting southern companies and products. In 1965, the Albany (New York) Chapter of the NAACP promoted a boycott of Mississippi goods. This manual listed the companies and products its members should avoid. It was hoped that the loss of customer dollars would help put an end to that state's segregationist policies.
