Historical Note

Crawfordville Enterprises was a non-profit venture undertaken by Southern Christian Leadership Foundation (SCLF), Southern Rural Action, Inc., and the citizens of Crawfordville, Georgia, through a Community Action Program (CAP) grant from the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO). Crawfordville Enterprises began in 1968 as a textile manufacturing project in the rural town of Crawfordville. Its aim was to create a black-owned and operated sewing plant, and provide community outreach and assistance to the poor African American population in Crawfordville. Though the project did not always directly involve SCLF, they did act as administrator of the grant money from OEO and helped to oversee some of the plant's operations. The company closed in 1983.

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of the records of Crawfordville Enterprises from 1968-1983, including correspondence, financial records, administrative records, and payroll records. The records document the founding and evolution of the company. The subseries also contains the records of Village Creations and B & B Enterprises, both for-profit textile business offshoots of Crawfordville Enterprises, managed by Chauncey Eskridge and SCLF. The records of Village Creations are interfiled with the records of Crawfordville Enterprises, as they coexisted in the same town and it was often difficult to distinguish between the two.

The financial records contain bank records, as well as bills, ledgers, and tax records, in which federal and state tax documents are filed together. Most of the bank records are specific to the operations at Village Creations. The administrative records include meeting minutes from the Crawfordville Enterprises Board of Directors and records tracing the disbursements of the OEO grant.
