Abstract 

The Delta Ministry printed this flyer after about 700 people convened for a mass meeting at the Mt. Beulah Center in Edwards, Mississippi from January 27-30. These members insisted that food, money, jobs, training, and housing be given to poor people. The flyer states that poor people will go to the Air Base every day until they receive assistance. It also calls for all poor people to go to the Delta Ministry office in Greenville, Mississippi, to organize demonstrations in their area, and to bring warm clothes and blankets to Greenville.
