Freedom Movement Contact Lists

[Contact lists of names, addresses, and phone numbers were the essential raw material of community organizing and Freedom Movement mobilization. They were also one of the few types of information that activists tried to keep secret out of fear that the police, Klan, and White Citizens Council would retaliate against those supporting the Civil Rights Movement. Since local sheriffs, sovereignity commissions, FBI, and others maintained extensive networks of neighborhood snitches in most Afro-American communities, as a practical matter they quickly identified most local activists and supporters, few of whom remained secret for long. But our organizational lists made identifying them easy and convenient so we went to some lengths to prevent them from falling into the hands of our adversaries.]
