Records of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee's (SNCC) Arkansas Project initiated in 1962 and of the Arkansas Summer Project begun in 1965, which were designed to combat segregation in public facilities and schools, to assist voter registration, and to raise the consciousness of black citizens. Included in the collection are records of the state headquarters in Little Rock, as well as the records of three local SNCC-sponsored citizens' groups: the Gould Citizens for Progress, the Pine Bluff Movement, and the St. Francis County Achievement Committee. Accessions of personal papers of Arkansas SNCC workers, including Laura Foner, William W. Hansen, Collin Minert, Vincent O'Connor, and Mitchell Zimmerman, have also been added to this collection. The records of all these allied groups and individuals consist of correspondence, reports, notes, affidavits and legal papers, and reference files, recorded interviews, and photographs.
