Boxes 539 - 592; OP13

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of the records of major programs initiated by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, as well as some records of the Programs Department, from 1957-2001. The series includes the records of the Programs Director; Citizenship Education Program; Poor People's Campaign; Operation Breadbasket; Minister's Leadership Training Program; Alabama Tri-County Project; Crisis in Health Care for Black and Poor Americans; Wings of Hope Anti-Drug Program; and Stop the Killing, End the Violence. Each subseries contains correspondence and office files that document the planning, execution and management of the programs.

Many of the programs included in this series were not organizationally part of a programs department. Programs often were geographically distant from the national office, grant funded special projects, or operated at a time when no programs department existed. Subseries 10.1 contains a small amount of records from the Programs Department, specifically those of the Programs Director, his assistant and a later Programs Development Officer.
