Black Perspective: Oktibbeha County NAACP Forsees 'Black Easter'
In this newspaper article, Michael Shields discusses the upcoming Easter boycott by Black citizens of most of Starkville's stores and merchants. Until the demands and grievances of the black community are met, only a few stores in Starkville will receive Black business. The article lists the grievances - lack of equality - and mentions the effectiveness of a similar boycott in West Point.
