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.

Conditions Governing Access

From the Record Group: This collection is open for use without restriction beyond the standard terms and conditions of Smith College Special Collections.

However, by agreement with the YWCA of the U.S.A., microdexes known to contain financial records or personal health information (usually on job applications) were not digitized and/or not published in our online repository as part of the CLIR Digitizing Hidden Collections grant. These microdexes may still be accessed on the original microfilm, and digital files may be made available to individual researchers upon request.

Conditions Governing Access

From the Record Group: Until we move into New Neilson in early 2021, collections are stored in multiple locations and may take up to 48 hours to retrieve. Researchers are strongly encouraged to contact Special Collections (specialcollections@smith.edu) at least a week in advance of any planned visits so that boxes may be retrieved for them in a timely manner.
