Series 3
Organizational files, 1989-2007
Boxes 15 - 21

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of files documenting organizations in which Elaine Brown had a significant leadership role from 1989-2007 and includes records of the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation, Fields of Flowers, the National Association for Radical Prison Reform, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Mothers Advocating Juvenile Justice, and the Brunswick (Georgia) Women's Association for Community Improvement, among others. Records of the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation, of which Brown was Vice President, document the sale of Newton's papers to Stanford University, collaborative educational projects with the University of New Mexico and Emory University, and ongoing work to promote the legacy of Newton and the Black Panther Party. Files for Fields of Flowers and the National Association for Radical Prison Reform contain administrative records for those organizations, as well as documentation of community projects and research files on similar organizations. Records relating to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference document Brown's attempt to run for a position on the Board of Directors and subsequent lawsuit against the organization for revoking affiliate memberships to prevent representatives of those groups from voting during the National Convention. Files relating to Brown's membership in other organizations, such as Mothers Advocating Juvenile Justice and the Brunswick Women's Association for Community Improvement, document her community activism and involvement in local politics.
