Description

List of members and the organizations they represented in the Virginia Commission on Interracial Cooperation. Dr. R.E. Blackwell was the Virginia Chairman of this group.

The parent organization, the Commission on Interracial Cooperation (CIC), was based in Atlanta, Ga. Founded in 1919 by progressive Southern whites, the CIC sought to improve race relations with an anti-lynching campaign, and by educating the public about issues affecting blacks such as peonage, police brutality, and disparities in educational and health services. The group published a newsletter, The Southern Frontier
