Papers of Jacqueline Bernard, a New York City resident who was an active supporter of the southern civil rights movement during the 1960s. Included are letters from her son, Joel Bernard, who was a volunteer with COFO in Clay County, Mississippi, and general correspondence, which is mainly from other Clay County civil rights workers, black residents of the county, and northern friends involved in backing the movement.
