Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of the records of Executive Vice President Andrew J. Young from 1963-1970, and includes correspondence, office files, and some writings. The subseries documents Young's time as Executive Vice President following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., including his involvement in the Charleston Hospital Worker's Strike of 1969. Of particular interest are files relating to Young's work with the Delta Ministry of Mississippi, SCLC's Poor People's Campaign and other projects, and the United Church of Christ's Council for Christian Social Action.
