Abstract 

In this letter to prominent civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer, author Sandra Nystrom donates $350 to the Sunflower County Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP) Voter Registration Fund on behalf of the National Committee for Free Elections in Sunflower. Nystrom promised an additional $450 from the organization for the following week, and $400 payments each week going forward. She explained in the letter to Hamer that her organization could help very little monetarily because of its own debts and obligations. Nystrom encouraged Hamer to continue with her voter registration efforts.
