Title

The Southern Frontier, vol. 1, no. 10

Description

Published by Commission on Interracial Cooperation (CIC), The Southern Frontier was a monthly newsletter, first issued in January, 1940. Aiming to share the stories overlooked by traditional newspapers, the newsletter published stories of social progress, as well as stories of racial injustices faced by African Americans across the American South.

As described by the then President of the CIC Howard W. Odum, the name The Southern Frontier alludes to the need for even greater pioneering and progress in the social and cultural frontiers, the American South being the most turbulent field in reference to race relations and progress at the time.

Vol. 1, No. 10 contains contributions by:
N.C. Newbold
R. B. Eleazer

Selected articles are:
“Commission Interracial Cooperation Holds Annual Meeting” – A recap of the annual meeting of the CIC, featuring highlights of the speech by President Odum, resolutions passed, new members elected, and the results of officer and director elections.

"South Carolina Interracial Committee Has Klan Problem"  -- describes the South Carolina Committee's efforts to condemn the KKK's acts of intimidation and physical violence, and to help defeat Klan members running for elected office.
