Biography/Profile

The Southern Regional Council was formed as the Commission on Interracial Cooperation in 1919, with the goals of improving relations between blacks and whites and achieving an unsegregated society. In 1944, the Commission was succeeded by the Southern Regional Council, a non-profit and non-denominational organization which was founded to continue to strive for racial equality and harmony in the South. The Southern Regional Council is organized into State Divisions and local groups, with its main headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. A basic function of the Southern Regional Council is to provide factual information on race relations and related matters to individuals and public, private, and official agencies. To this end, a library and research facility are maintained, original studies are undertaken and published, and special projects and services are supported. In addition, such Southern Regional Council publications as New South help to advance the objectives of the organization.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of annual reports of the executive director, brochures, memoranda, news releases, published and mimeographed reports, research projects, special reports, speeches, and studies.
