Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of records pertaining to the publication of various SCLC periodicals from 1965-2002, including: SCLC Newsletter (1961-1966); North and South: SCLC Staff News (circa 1967); Soul Force (1968-1973); Drum Major (1971-1972); and SCLC Magazine (1972-2007). Soul Force was an SCLC newspaper that was initially begun to promote and document the Poor People's Campaign; it also reported on other SCLC campaigns and events. Drum Major included reprinted speeches by SCLC staff and other civil rights figures, as well as original and reprinted scholarly essays. SCLC Magazine featured editorials as well as articles on national campaigns and events, relevant news, and the activities of local chapters and affiliates.

The bulk of the subseries documents Soul Force and SCLC Magazine, and this material can be found at the beginning of the series, with additional publications arranged alphabetically under the heading "Other publications." Folders for individual issues of each publication contain drafts of original content produced for that publication and relevant correspondence. Also included in the subseries are mailing lists and subscription information. Numerous folders about SCLC Magazine contain correspondence and complaints about advertising solicitations, correspondence about donations made by corporations in exchange for advertisements in the magazine, and invoices for advertisements. The subseries also includes a small amount of material regarding other types of publications, including one time histories of SCLC and brochures.
