Description: This May 3, 1968 article published in the Guilford College student newspaper, The Guilfordian, outlines the Poor People’s Campaign run by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. The movement was made up of poor people from across the country and across racial divides. The inclusion of this article in The Guilfordian is significant as it showed a heightened awareness of events occurring outside of Greensboro related to civil rights.
