Abstract 

The author of this notice, which is labeled "Restricted," announces the re-opening of the Mount Beulah Center in Mississippi as "Freedom College." Ed King, who resigned from the Tougaloo College faculty, spearheaded the Freedom College project and acted as administrator. The author speculated that the Delta Ministry was providing the financial backing for Freedom College. The author noted that the college aimed to provide educations for African-Americans who would not have otherwise been able to pay for college. Eunita Blackwell, whom the author noted was associated with the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP), and Joseph Harris, a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), joined the Freedom College initiative as employees. A separate notice stated that a project to bring H. Rap Brown to Jackson was discontinued.
