Scope and Content Notes

The collection consists of documents generated or received by The Southern Courier, 1965-1969. The bulk of the records date between 1965 and 1968; with some dated as late as 1969. They include correspondence, newspaper clippings, articles, pamphlets and other miscellaneous documents. The records are potentially valuable to those interested in researching a history of sociological thought regarding the lives of rural Southern poor and African Americans, Democratic thought and the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

History

1965 - 1969

Based in Montgomery AL, The Southern Courier was a weekly newspaper that covered the Civil Rights Movement from July of 1965 to December 1968. Started by Peter Cummings of the Harvard Crimson, Harvard University, Massachusetts, The Southern Courier�s auspicious beginning in July of 1965 was filled with youthful exuberance and a distinct desire for unbiased reporting (in contrast to the seeming bias of white-owned newspapers) of the civil rights movement and problems, in general, of African Americans in the South. Originally planned as a regional, non-profit, independent paper, its young staffers (which ranged in age from 19 to 23) narrowed their efforts toward an almost exclusive Alabama audience.

Originally consisting of a simple six-page format, the paper had a fluctuating distribution which began at 15,000 copies. Throughout its entire time, subscriptions and advertising were insufficient in maintaining the paper�s financial stability. Utilizing $32,000.00 in donations received primarily from "Eastern liberals" as startup funds, The Southern Courier eventually received grants from a variety of corporations and endowments, which aided them in maintaining staff and helping with day to day operations. Austere measures during the entire time of publication meant that staff members relied on "help from home" and often doubled as typesetters and printers.

The Southern Courier�s editor, Michael Lottman, not only sought to insure the paper's integrity, but was an active fundraiser and stern supervisor over the paper's 17 original staff members and many distributors. The paper's courageous reporters were expected to become part of the communities from which they reported. Their articles were to be without bias and independent from any groups or organizations. Although pro-civil rights, they viewed thems elves, not as agents of change, but as witnesses to the societal upheaval of a nation's evolution. Furthermore, these young men and women often found themselves in precarious situations during marches, meetings and events where violence often occurred

After three tumultuous years, The Southern Courier came to an end in December of 1968 due to funding shortfalls. Many of the staff had continued to work, until the last paper was printed, with little or no financial assistance. The paper's influence led to many localized newsletters, thereby assisting in a grass roots campaign for racial equality.
