Scope and Contents
Documents concerning the southern regional YWCA of the U.S.A. Action Program workshops. Action Program is a YWCA of the U.S.A. initiative to fully integrate their program, associations and leadership. These southern region workshops bring local association leaders to discuss the issues of racism and segregation in their communities and associations, examine the role of each leadership position in bringing about the changes necessary to integrate programs and associations, and determine a program of action. Additional materials after regional workshop notes, proceedings and transcripts include reports of segregation and integration in Ashfield, North Carolina, Charlotte, North Carolina, Corpus Christi, Texas, and San Antonio Texas as well as notes from local association meetings to discuss integration prior to the 1964 convention.
