National CORE documents

Description

A collection of documents that relate to national CORE or were from the national office and were disseminated to all chapters.
The pre-Black Power items here come by way of the Civil Rights Movement Veterans website, http//:www.crmvet.org. It consists of documents that are from the National CORE office and given to all chapters for members. It includes three pamphlets, 'CORE Rules for Action', 'All About CORE' , and 'This is CORE'. Also includes a CORE membership card and a copy of the CORE-lator, their national newsletter.
My thanks to to Bruce Hartford of crmvet.org for allowing me the use of these documents. Great resource for scholars of the movement(s)...

Collector(s)

A membership card used by members of CORE, the national organization, regardless of the chapter they belonged to. Paying regular financial dues were required to be a member.

A CORE pamphlet, centered on Southern workers, used to recruit new members.

A CORE pamphlet, given to all new members and potential members, recruitment tool. Take note of how the drawing of Gandhi is featured on it's cover.

This is a pamphlet given out to all potential members and members, describing CORE's definition of non-violent tactics to be used in demonstrations , protests, etc.

This is a copy of the national news letter. I picked this edition because it contains a story of the school boycotts that Harlem CORE helped organize in 1964.
