Search Tips. You can search for:
Junebug Jabbo Jones".
March on Washington" or "
Congress of Racial Equality" (enclosed in quotes) will return fewer but better targeted results than searching for the acronym "CORE." Note also that any search for any of the major organizations will return a LOT of results — so many as to be overwhelming unless you include additional search parameters. For example, "
Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Lowndes, 1966".
nonviolent" and "
non-violent" will return different results so you may need to search for both (this also applies to SNCC's name).
