Caption
This document is part of a scrapbook that was compiled in 1956 and 1957 by Frances Albrier during her term as president of the San Francisco Chapter of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW). The scrapbook highlights the Chapter’s efforts to register voters and educate Bay Area residents on the importance of voting as a part of the Citizenship Education Project which was jointly sponsored by the NCNW and the National Urban League.
Description
A newspaper clipping describing the actions and participants of the Citizen Education Project's September 8, 1956 motorcade through the Fillmore District of San Francisco. The article, written by Connie Delgado, lists the groups that took part in the motorcade and urges readers to register to vote before the September 13th deadline. The photograph adjacent to the article depicts young children and members of the San Francisco Chapter of the National Council of Negro Women with placards standing next to a car that was part of the motorcade. The photograph was taken by Cox Studios. The clipping was found between pages eight (8) and nine (9) of the scrapbook compiled by Frances Albrier (2010.60.1).
